Take a hike


" In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks."  John Muir

THEORY: A sense of adventure goes along with exploring and hiking is a great way to explore nature and come into contact with it's amazing plants and animals. You can hike in some of the most beautiful places on earth and in many different terrains including beaches, forests, plains, hills and mountains. Hiking is the starting point for many other outdoor activities e.g. camping, rock climbing and  mountaineering.

Hiking can be simple or involved and this probably depends on the length of your hike, the terrain and what lessons, if any, you may want to take from the hike. To be really organised you may want to consider:
EQUIPMENT: Good walking shoes and sox, a backpack, bottle of water, a snack that is light to carry, a hat, insect repellant, a compass, sun screen and first aid kit.
