Exploring Outdoor Trails
Exploring nature trails with your family can be a wonderful rewarding experience. Just seeing smiles on those little faces when they discover something new is enough to make your day. But then you notice that the ones that were telling you that they didn’t have to take out trash or won’t clean their room; are now listening to every word your saying about something they are interested in. Just recently I came across a blog that hits points on this subject very well. It’s a man that enjoys taking time with his family on nature trails while taking nice quiet walks in wooded areas that are defined as hikes by this author. Taking in a part of history that takes readers back to a time when horses were the means of transportation to this area. He shares thoughts of walking with his dog while he defines differences between walking on city streets & a pleasant hike in a wooded area with fresh air in your lungs & sounds of blowing leaves.
I have always enjoyed nature trails & hikes along lakeshores or wooded areas where I live. You may want to look into purchasing a trekking pole or two if this is something that appeals to you. There is many times when something as simple as a walking stick could have prevented a slip or a fall. There is price ranges for all with many different styles to choose from. If you are more inclined to take longer trails that involve all day adventures or even an overnight trip you are going to want to have proper gear for this also. There is many good one person tents that can be found online. One place I know has a good selection of tents is this outdoor tent store. You will also need a good set of lightweight cooking pans that will store in your backpack without weighting you down. These are just a few items you want to plan out for your nature trails hiking experience.
