Hunting petroglyphs in the Nevada desert
I'm a fan of Bolder Athletic Wear (formerly known as Sparkle Skirts) because they're the perfect blend of style and comfort. They were originally made for runners (marathoners), but they're fantastic for hiking because not only are the built-in shorts long enough to prevent thigh rub, they have POCKETS. There are huge pockets on the outside of each leg, plus there's a large zippered pocket in the waistband. I can be comfortable and have all of my stuff (phone, snacks, lip balm, soap flake, etc) in easy reach!
