Ladies of the Mountains: Favorite Hiking Item

Ok so remember when I said lots of exciting things were happening this month? Here is the first one: I was asked by the lovely ladies of LOTM to be a guest poster for the month, eee! I was so honored that they even thought of me for a potential guest post, so of course I jumped at the chance! Hopefully I don't disappoint. 

My favorite hiking item is super simple and probably an obvious choice, but I chose my whale water bottle because I just love it so much. 

This little guy has been with me through many adventures from hiking to multiple cross county trips! I am oddly particular about my water and the container it is in, think a young Abigail Bresilin from Signs. Ok so maybe not that extreme, but I can get pretty close, hehe. Finding a container that I like and is portable hasn't always been the easiest.
Exploring the forest on the oposite side of our mountain.
So when my brother gave me this guy as a birthday gift I was over the moon, and it pretty much has never left my side since. It is the perfect size; sometimes we just go on for a quick hike on our mountain and don't want to carry around a whole bunch of stuff. It works great just carrying it by hand, and it has an adorable picture of a whale on it. And those teeth! What's not to love about that?! 

Make sure to check out all the other ladies post for this week!
