Hiking Tip – Rise Early

Autumn morning hikes are magical.  The sun is late to rise, the light is magnificent, the air is refreshingly cool and the world is still a bit sleepy. As you start your journey you feel as though someone has whispered in your ear a secret no on yet knows.  The secret being, if you rise early and get outside an entire world awaits, a world you may not have otherwise had the opportunity to witness.

And thus, that nudge to move out of the warmth of your crinkled, cozy sheets, to slowly get yourself dressed will be rewarded through the natural world.  The stately horses trotting through vineyards colored with magnificent hues of yellow and red, the dog that runs in circles through the corn field elated to stretch her legs and run free, the castle perched on the hill with a misty haze looming all around inviting you to explore.  Those are the gifts, the wonder that will infuse your day if you just wake early.

Go find your magic today!

Hiking Tip – Layers

When hiking with a friend last week, she recommended I complete a post on hiking layers.  So this post is based on her inspiration.  Thanks girl!

Now that the weather is turning chilly (I love it) knowing how to layer is key to making the most of your outdoor experience.

The top:

T-Shirt – Long Sleeve – Fleece – Jacket

The bottom:

Long hiking pants that zip off – wool socks (my favorite) – for super cold weather, wear a base layer under your pants and upgrade to warmer hiking pants.  Always wear proper hiking boots when on the trail.

Never leave home without:

Sunglasses, a scarf or a Buff, gloves and a hat!

Happy trails!
