Our top 12 outdoorsy movies

Oh March how you tease us, on Tuesday we're dreaming of summer with your 68 degree temperatures and by Thursday we're pouting over 3" of snow.  Anyone else have the early-spring blues?  Since it's too chilly to head outside in shorts and kayak lets dream over a movie night.  Grab the popcorn, your favorite quilt, get comfy on the couch and watch one these favorites.

Movies for the family:

The Great Outdoors - John Candy wants his kids to rediscover their family and the wonder of nature.  Picture the kids with iPhones and it's still SO relevant.

The Long Long Trailer - The classic among classics.  Always makes my list.

RV - The instant family favorite. My kiddos love this movie!

Camp - A wonderful story of a show-off businessman who struggles to connect with a kid who comes from a rough life at summer camp.  It's not a complicated movie, but it's definitely heart warming.

National Treasure - For my fellow history geeks!

National Treasure 2 - Mt. Rushmore, hidden treasure, and secrets? Need I say more?

The National Parks: America's Best Idea - Or really any Ken Burns nature documentary.  With the NPS centennial celebration this set of 6 "episodes" is definitely a great way to dive deeper into this wonderful system we have.

Mr. Hobbs Takes A Vacation - Jimmy Stewart takes his family to the east coast for summer vacation and just about everything goes wrong.  It's a hysterical movie that not many people remember.

Adults Only:

A Walk In The Woods - Bill Bryson's best-selling book made into a terrific movie with Robert Redford and his trip on the Appalachian Trail.  

Wild - The true story of the downward spiral of a woman named Cheryl and the way she sorted out her life while walking the Pacific Crest Trail on her own.  

Indian Summer - for all those who wonder what it would be like to head back to summer camp as an adult.

Vacation - The recent cult classic reboot.  A hysterical family road trip story gone terribly wrong.
