Tell us about your favorite hike in the world
When my husband (then fiance) and I were visiting Hawaii, where he grew up, we hiked to these amazing natural water slides. It was a little crazy getting there, but it was absolutely breath taking. I can’t wait to take the kids there!

Favorite Hike it Baby moment so far?
I’ve really loved watching moms make new friends or moms who have met online in different Facebook groups connect in real life.

Tell us what you like about Hike it Baby
The sense of community and the motivation to get the family outside and enjoy nature in all her amazing moods.

What is the best advice for a new hiking family?
Just go. It doesn’t have to be a crazy 3 day trek through the mountains, just get outside.

Got a favorite trail trick?
Snacks. If you have a toddler bring snacks.

What kind of terrain do you like best?
Varied, I like mountains and water, streams, whatever, just variety.

Why is it important to you to have your kiddo out in nature?
Nature is so amazing and makes me so happy, I want my children to love the earth and respect it also.

How stoked are you about your win!? How will you use it?
I am super excited, I never win stuff! Once I won a rain barrel, I think I was the only one who entered. It’ll be nice to not have my ergo get damp in the rain and have a nice wind guard.
