Is Cherry Country Calling You?

Heads up, folks. If you haven't yet entered our contest to win a trip to Cherry Country (otherwise known as the Pacific Northwest), time is running out! You have until July 14th to enter this great trip giveaway. Here's the scoop. Whole Foods Market is partnering with Intrepid Travel® to offer a chance to win a trip for two to the Pacific Northwest. You can experience the magnificent terrain of the Northwest cherry growing states and more on this 7-night/8-day camping adventure for 2 including airfare, accommodations, local transportation and select meals and park entrance fees. Relax seaside in Mendocino, CA; stand beside millennia-old trees; experience the beauty of Silver Falls State Park, OR; examine bizarre lava-landscapes near Mt St Helens; get a head rush on top of Mt Rainier; coast along in Seattle; and finish your journey with a trip to Wenatchee, a key Whole Foods Market cherry growing region in beautiful Washington State. Enter this contest on our Cherry Fest web page by July 14th. Whether you enter the contest or not, a fresh, heaping bowlful of cherries is a summer tradition, and a classic cherry pie is a celebration in itself.

It would mean i could go home again for a little while. It would mean wandering through the fields and orchards again. it would mean seeing family and helping with canning season for just a little while:-)

I would love to visit this part of the Northwest area-camping and hiking in beautiful surroundings is something I have not done but would enjoy the chance to truly feel the nature and beauty of the land. And to the chance to tast wild cherries among nature's pets would make an awesome impression on my soul. Thanks, Ava
