Mariette Beaudoin. Hiking. April 27th , 2018.
Just after we started the High Sierra we met Swiss Miss and Pang. I hiked together with them the rest of the way to Canada. Along the way I spend varying amounts of time with other hikers as well. A group of 12 of us left Yosemite together - The Dirty Dozen! Half of us were from the U.S. and half were from other countries so it became a very international experience. Each of us had strengths and weakness and we learned to work together as a team and to help and depend on each other. My greatest fear before starting the hike was crossing the rapid flowing icy cold rivers. They turned out to not be as terrible as I had expected. We had a few close calls and some struggles but the teamwork was amazing and we did it together.
Helmet. Many mountain hikers overlook the importance of a helmet but it is an essential mountain hiking gear. Even when hiking over a mountain there is always the risk that a broken chunk of mountainous terrain might fall right on top of you and your helmet will protect your head from damage.
You may be interested in traveling further away from home for a holiday and need to research hiking parks and trails. The internet is useful for finding the information you need and for other resources like places to stay whilst you are away. Once you have arrived at your destination the local tourist office will have plenty of information available and usually have the most up-to-date information. Sometimes hiking trails or parks have to close for one reason or another so you can get recommendations for other places to hike. You can always the best trails that way. Local residents at your destination will have a good knowledge of the area so you may want to think about asking them some questions about the local trails and the ones that are highly recommended.
Harness. If you are going on a mountain hiking trip then another important gear you will need is a harness. You can wear a harness just like a pair of pants and it will rest on your hips. While hiking you will need to use the harness for attaching yourself to the belay device or the rope and for carrying gear. A harness will act as a safety net for you while you are hiking over a mountain and make sure you wear it tightly enough so that if you end up flipped upside down you do not slip out of it.
