Welcome to our blog It's the Sound of Sunshine! We are new to the blogging world... We decided to start this blog this weekend while were on a three day and two night backpacking adventure in the mountains. This was our very first two night camping excursion, just the two of us. We always have the best time and then afterwards realize we really had no idea what we were doing. Thank goodness we survived! Ha!
We have discovered over the years a serious lack of information on outdoor adventure for people like us... We are your typical girl and guy next door who love a little outdoor adventure. We are not into extreme sporting nor are we into leisurely strolls. We are somewhere in between. We are in our mid-thirties. We enjoy dressing up and date nights but also LOVE Kayaking, Camping, Hiking, Mountain Biking (him) and Running (me).
This weekend with little information to go by and the gear we have collected over the past couple of years we loaded up and hit the trail. We covered 8 - 9 miles of strenuous, rocky, root covered trails with significant grade changes and with 30 lb. (mine) and 50 lb. ( his) backpacks. Drank the water God provided from the streams and branches along the way. Trusting the trees to provide us cool shade during the day and the campfire to provide us warmth at night! Breathtaking views were abundant along the way! We had a wonderful weekend!
Since we have had a bit of trial and error we decided why not help out other people like us, those in search of the in between. We want to share some of our experiences, gear review and trail routes for the locals. We hope you enjoy!
