Our summer here in the Canadian Rockies is going on... and on... and on. What a novelty! The hiking continues to be prime -- Moose Mountain, Fullerton Loop, Ha Ling Peak all tackled by family member's over the past little while. If there is any "downside" to fall hiking, it's the cool morning starts. Temperatures don't reach the warm range (and right now the "hot" range) until mid-afternoon. That's where this latest article from the Hiking & Backpacking site at BellaOnline.com comes into play!
Zip-off Hiking Pants
Multi-function gear helps reduce your packload when hiking or backpacking, which is why convertible pants are a popular choice of clothing for many hikers.

Happy fall hiking,
