If you haven’t checked out Sarah’s blog Trail Cooking and the Outdoors, you really should. Sarah is an avid hiker in her home territory of Washington state, and has made it a family affair, bringing her sons on her several-hours-long hikes since before they could walk. If I lived that close to the Cascade Mountains, I would probably spend every free moment I had in them, too!
I love reading her hiking stories, as well as her recipes (her recipe for Cheesy Couscous is a favorite for our troop!). Yesterday, she posted a fun look inside her hiking daypack. I love seeing the differences between her trail bag, geared towards a mom with young children hiking around for hours in wooded mountains; and mine, geared towards hiking around with a troop in much more civilized woods.
Is your trail bag more like hers or mine? Why? What special issues do YOU have to be prepared for?
