Hiking. Friday , April 27th , 2018 - 22:10:39 PM
We entered the Sierra Nevada on June 11 in a very heavy snow year so we spent about a month hiking through snow sometimes only getting down below snow level in the evening to camp. I had very little experience hiking in deep snow and no experience navigating when the trail was covered with snow most of the day. Mostly we did it with map and compass but we did use a GPS some to pinpoint the trail location and to confirm which was the right pass a few times. I had crampons at the beginning of the Sierras but soon lost them off the back of my pack before I ever used them. One thing we didn‘t have to worry about was water. We got spoiled by only having to carry a liter or two of water. We often drank directly from springs and the snow melt streams without bothering to treat the water.
Personally I prefer a good solid boot without anything too fancy. But really it is a case of experimenting with your preferences and trying on a few different styles and brands until you‘re happy with your choice. Once you‘ve got them spend a bit of time hiking regularly while breaking them in and soon enough you‘ll have a pair of hiking boots that will almost feel as though they‘re a part of your feet.
Other Gear. While this was the most essential mountain hiking gear that you might possibly need depending on your preference and style there are several other hiking gear you can use too. Some of this gear includes cams chalk bags for the winter and webbing. If you ever decide to go for mountain hiking whether you plan to by yourself or with a hiking partner never leave without the mentioned essential mountain hiking gear.
