Spring. It's a fresh, vibrant season in the National Park System, one of renewal, for the parks’ wildlife, vegetation, and even for human visitors. After long, dark months of cold and snow across much of the system, the arrival of March, April, and May provide greater warmth, daylight, and access in the parks.
National parks can be great places to fly kites, and those with beaches often are best thanks to the lack of trees and steady breezes. These kites took wing at Kalaloch in Olympic National Park.
