As I was walking this morning I was amazed at how everything greened up so quickly with the rain and warmer temps. Makes my mind wander to the summer and all the glorious hikes available in the state of Maine. That's when I happened upon a list of things to consider taking I'd never thought of before.

I found this list and a whole bunch of other great ideas on the Facebook page for trails.com. Now when I go hiking I take the obligatory camera and snacks. Here are a few of the items they suggested that I liked:

  • A nylon hammock
  • A journal and pen
  • A headlamp
  • my favorite book (for me that's an audiobook)
  • water shoes
