My parents had us traipsing through the Rocky Mountains starting at an early age.
When we moved east, I remember being less impressed at first with the Appalachian Mountains, because they weren’t as high. (Yes, roll your eyes. And trust me, I got over that.)
But oh, those were clearly the formative years: to this day, I still go swoony even just at the sight of a mountain.
Did you see Helen Olsson 10 tips for hiking with children? It’s a list worth pulling out of your pocket on mornings when you’re three-quarters out the door rarin’ to go but the others aren’t quite with you yet. These tips should help.

What are your hiking tips?
