July 2018: A Note From Diane

July = Jewel-eye hiking!

By that, I mean there are so many dazzling sights to see this month.

Here’s a view of Windy Arm (near Carcross) from the top of a “hill” in Canada. Can you get a sense of the immensity of this place?

I’ll be sharing more photos of my Yukon hikes in the coming months, but over the next few weeks will be sure to put a few of them on the Hiking For Her Facebook page.

Long story short on Yukon hiking: huge, wild, windy country with lynx, bear, caribou, fox, and eagle sightings every single day, both on and off the trail. Amazing place!! Now that I’ve recovered from the mosquito bites, I heart Yukon hiking :)

Onward to the good stuff this month...

More Gear Companies To Love

Hiking For Her believes in supporting brands which do more than just design and sell high quality hiking and camping gear. That’s why there’s a shout out to three companies this month:

MSR: Their Impact Fund focuses on global health via clean drinking water. MSR Safe Water Project

Biolite: Their innovative designs for off-grid cooking and lighting has made a big difference in quality of life for people in India and Africa, through partnerships with local companies. Biolite Purpose

Lifestraw: The Give Back program ensures that for every product purchased to purify your hiking water, one child living in a place without access to clean water will receive safe drinking water for the length of a school year. Lifestraw Story

Next time you’re considering a gear purchase, please put these companies at the top of your list. I know that their gear is solid, because I've used it and reviewed it! I wouldn't be recommending it to you otherwise.
