It’s Fall! You know that that means. Changing colors, cools weather, maybe some sweaters. For this Mountain Chick, though, it means it’s hiking season. I’m based out of Arizona, so in the summer heat, I resort to late night camping in the hopes of escaping the sun for a little bit while still being outside, which usually results in me picking out a campsite, waking up in the A.M., then realizing that my midnight vision of what I thought the site actually looked like, is completely different.

Meh, story of my life. Well those days are over…for now. Anyhow, I am a bit of a lazy hiker/ explorer in the sense that I don’t like going through my pack again and again and again to make sure I have everything. I usually have the same items in my bag or on me, plus or minus a few depending on the weather/ trail.

Below is a list of items I take with me on trail, just about all day every day. *This is a comprehensive list of gear that I bring with me. You will not need every item for every trip.*
