This summer, we're going on vacation... All summer long, we're tagging along on some of the best weekends of all -- those that last more than two or three days, and stretch into weeks. A few weeks ago, we went camping. Last week, we drove to a controversial old barn, north of San Francisco.
But some people don't dream much of summer vacation. For some, the idea of heading into the great outdoors is a nightmare. For example, Natalie Edwards. We're calling Natalie's summer trip a "nature intervention." For her, the biggest challenge was taking a evening stroll through Prospect Park, in Brooklyn, New York.
