What's in my backpack for hiking...

 Getting ready to have an active summer and thought I would share what's in my hiking backpack with you. It's time to BE on the move again. As the weather gets nicer I can't wait to hike again and go kayaking. It's important to be prepared for any situation.  For anyone interested I will put in links for where I purchased items.  Make sure to check the weather before you go so you dress properly and add clothes for wind or rain and wear proper footwear.
