Seasonal Big Activity
Several times a year, ALPS organizes a Seasonal Big Activity, such as a summer visit to Mount Rainier National Park, a fall visit to a pumpkin farm and Deception Pass State Park, a winter visit to the snowy mountain village of Leavenworth, and a springtime Seattle Mariners Major League Baseball game.
