Welcome to Backpacking Kids!
I am a 40-something mother of two, living in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. I am starting this blog as a resource for parents and kids who love backpacking together. I will share trip reports and photos, review backpacking gear, and share tips that make backpacking easier and more fun for the whole family. I hope that my friends and family will also contribute, and that I will make new “virtual” friends who will post their experiences.
There are lots of backpacking blogs already out there, of course. I will include some that I recommend (and read) in this blog. But I have not found many blogs specifically focused on backpacking with children. So I decided to start my own.
Thanks for reading, and please feel free to respond to posts on this blog with your own insights or trip suggestions for backpacking with children. Posts that are inappropriate will be removed.
Thanks for reading, now get outside!
