Unplug at Camp Rahh

camp-rahh
Summer camps are a staple of any amazing childhood. You get a week away from your parents (or they get a week away from you), you make new friends, participate in exciting outdoor activities, step outside your comfort zone and to put it simply, have fun. As working adults, it can be difficult to take some personal time to unplug, relax and just have fun. Fun is essential to living. A life cannot be spent simply locked into a desk.

When all you want to do is get out of town and as far from your desk job as possible, weekend getaways are clutch. There’s nothing like the feeling of leaving the office early on a Friday and hittin’ the road. And if you’re anything like me, one of the best parts of skipping town is trying new restaurants, sampling local specialties, and searching for hidden eateries off the beaten path.

Crystal Crane Hot Springs Pond by Belinda Greb
Off the tiny two-lane highway of State Road 78, roughly 150 miles East of Bend, Or., lies the quaint, intimate, lavish-but-low-key Crystal Crane Hot Springs . Just outside of the tiny town of Crane, OR, it is like a spa, cowboy campground, lodge, and waterpark all in one. The hot springs have been an integral part of life in the area since the early 1900s. Dan and Denise Kryger purchased the property in 1997, bringing Crystal Cranes Hot Springs to what it is today with an extensive series of updates, upgrades, and little touches. Most notable are the cedar-enclosed private bathhouses, which add so much towards appreciating what a world-class spa experience this truly is, in the middle of nowhere. The Kryger's also upgraded the RV and dry-camping, as well as providing other luxury spa services like an on-call massage...

About once a year I undoubtedly crave the unsettling anticipation you might get walking a small mountain road in the Andes or jumping off a cliff into the warm bath water of the Caribbean Sea. It’s the idea of the great unknown, new perspective, and reminder that the world is bigger than your cubicle; it’s travel and this year’s hunger for adventure took me across the Pacific to Thailand. Why Thai? In Thailand there is something for everyone. The Northern historical city of Chaing Mai is the place for a more isolated, traditional Thai experience with a laid-back atmosphere, temples, and animal sanctuaries. Bangkok is bustling with people, parties, and excitement until well into the early morning. The Southern islands have pristine beaches, clear, teal waters, plus some of the best diving in the world. Getting around either by domestic...
