Despite the county’s strict burn ban implementation, the camp fire tradition is still freely practiced without necessarily securing a permit, provided the fire meets the 3ft x 3ft x 2ft size limit. Nevertheless, care must always be observed as neglect could harm campers and start huge open fires as well, especially during dry seasons like summer. Among the common consequences of campfire handling mishaps are burns, whose degree and medical attention needed may vary. First aid kits are a must in every camping trip; a camper ought to know that. Identifying the degree of burn, though, will help you determine whether a situation can be dealt with on your own for the mean time, and can be checked in an urgent care clinic when you get back to urban Everett, or if it’s an emergency and it’s time to pack up.

When you fall and hit your head, see a doctor to comprehensively check for head injuries. Concussions often don’t have apparent signs, so whether or not you feel any lingering pain, have yourself checked anyway. A facility providing urgent care in Everett, such as U.S. HealthWorks Medical Group, can also treat flare-ups of any chronic conditions (for instance, asthma attacks or spikes in blood pressure) and other minor issues like scrapes and wounds, sprains, or dizziness.

The early bloom even makes it more enticing. In the run-up to the annual Skagit Valley Tulip Festival on the 1st of April, organizers noted the early bloom of the valley's flowers due to the warm weather. Since December last year, the region has benefitted from record temperatures, the mark of early spring. While the festival was still scheduled for the said date, organizers encouraged visitors to come as early as possible to catch the colorful fields. They flowers keep their color as long as the weather is cool, but warming temperatures may force farmers to harvest them early to prevent losing their freshness.
