Mt. Ellinor View
Sometimes life gets hectic. Planning an overnight escape for yourself can be tedious in itself. A healthy way to gain mental clarity, get away from it all, and even get some exercise is to embark on a local day hike. Support your State or National by exploring one of the many trails less than an hour away. Whether you are trekking the salt flats or hiking to the top of the mountain, it important to always remember the 10 essentials. Just because it’s sunny at base camp doesn’t mean the mountain air won’t be frigid, and safe drinking water isn’t always available. Remember, though the incline seems laborious, the views can be remarkable. Make sure to start early in the day so you can take your time to stop and smell the flowers. You might even make a few Friends along the way.
