'Hikes' author's article runs in Seattle Backpacker Magazine

My article “Motivation – Get the Family to Hike This Summer!” appeared in Wednesday’s Seattle Backpackers Magazine. The article lists some activities parents can do to get their reluctant kids excited about an upcoming day hike. Among the activities are crafting homemade gear, making trail mix, and watching videos (Yes, you read right, “watching videos”). Seattle Backpackers Magazine – based out of Seattle, as you might guess – is an online source for backpacking, hiking, climbing and camping.

Read more about day hiking with children in my guidebook Hikes with Tykes.
