Do you have the right gear for your hiking trip?

It does not matter if you are going on a "couple hour" hike or a week adventure, please be more than prepared. Food, water, and of course...

There are so many shoes to choose from when it comes to the "right shoes" for your feet and hiking needs. Choosing the wrong fit/pair could be critical for your body and longevity of your joints.

Ok, so here's my Washington State hiking story.

I don't like it.

I don't, I simply don't find the joy BUT, I know so many people who do, and I just wanted to make sure people had the tools to make their hiking experience the best!

Hiking in Washington State is an experience of a lifetime, you just want to be super prepared.

Here in Wenatchee, we are surrounded by mountains and tailheads. You could find a different hike a day if you wanted to. But please, like I have mentioned many times over.

Please be Prepared while Hiking anywhere, not just Washington State.
