Best Snacks to Pack for National Parks Hiking & Camping!
Ah, the great outdoors! If there was ever a summer we're itching to get out of the house, it's this one. Obviously we're packing marshmallows and graham crackers for s'mores, but when we've had enough sweets around the campfire, or granola bars for our hikes, White Cheddar, Jalapeño and Cheddar Cheese Balls are our go-to snack.
