Welcome to all who arrived here from Claire Walter’s fabulous blog Mile High on the Cheap and other Cities on the Cheap!
The Certified Good Hiker Kit is an outdoor education game that helps adults teach kids how to be “good hikers” — how to have fun in the outdoors while staying safe and treading lightly on the environment. I invented the Kit when my young nieces came to visit me in Boulder. I wanted them to be safe on the trail, but I didn’t want to scare the heck out of them with tales of wildlife, so I turned it into a game. They are very proud to be the first Certified Good Hikers, and they know how to handle themselves outdoors. You can read more about Good Hiker and our first hike in Rocky Mountain National Park.
We are celebrating Earth Day this weekend! And here at GoodHiker we are all about treading lightly on the Earth — while hiking as well as in our daily lives. So to celebrate, I’m giving away 100 Certified Good Hiker Kits this weekend. To get one:
