HiB Hike On! Winner Profile - Tana Stone (2)Meet Tana, Finley (4) and Caitlin (1.5)! They got out and hiked on July 25th for the Hike it Baby Hike On! event and were entered to win a prize just by registering their hike that day! Thanks to our awesome prize partners at Tifosi they won a pair of Tifosi Hagen Sunglasses!

What hike did you conquer on Saturday, July 25th? What was your favorite part of hiking that trail?
We hiked at Harriet Alexander Nature Center. The best part was seeing a white tailed deer. My girls were so excited to see the deer. My husband caught a little frog and girls tried to hold the frog. I love that our girls are interested in seeing large and small wildlife.

Did you have any obstacles to overcome to get out or while on your hike that day?
It was HOT and humid. We are still adjusting to MN summer temperatures.

HiB Hike On! Winner Profile - Tana Stone (1)Why do you think hiking is a positive influence in our children’s lives?
It is so important for my girls to touch bark, find rocks, play with sticks and see wildlife in their habitat. Hiking with kids allows them to use their five senses.

What is your advice for anyone who is contemplating hiking with their little ones for the first time?
Take lots of snacks.  The goal is getting outside. It doesn’t matter how far you go or for how long.

Are you excited about the prize you won? Tell us about what you plan to do with it!
YES!!! I’ll be wearing my new sunglasses as I continue to explore MN dirt trails.
