Saturday morning we got up early and headed up the trail in our community for a little hike. I use the term hike loosely because hiking with 2 year old entails walking a mile or less. The little one wants to climb and explore everything these days. My instincts scream “NO!,” so I am trying to over come them and let him be a little boy and explore, climb, and be without his mommy by his side for more than 20 seconds. It’s hard!
I usually hike in basic running clothes like this simple running shorts and tee, but we are headed to Alaska in a month, so we definitely need some good quality hiking gear. I’ve been debating what to get that I will be able to wear hiking both in Alaska and New Mexico without spending a fortune and have settled on these boots, these pants, and this amazing vest.
What’s your favorite hiking gear? Any suggestions for what I should take on our trip (I need serious help…..hiking clothes are not my thing)?
