Without knowing it, I married a man who loves to hike. Now, this comes from a girl who would do ANYTHING IN THE WORLD to get out of participating in the hike at girl's camp when I was younger. This summer, we are going to go on many vacations with hiking involved. We are going to Mesa Verde, Arches National Park, Zion's National Park, and Bryce Canyon National Park. A few weeks ago, we decided to do a hike up Rock Canyon in Provo. After the hike, Chris suggested that we get some trekking poles to help our journey. Today, we tried them out. They make hiking a lot easier and more bearable! They help with balance, and take the strain off of my knees. I am in favor of trekking poles, although they did make my arms a little sore!
