Being well-prepared for a backpacking trip is essential! The route needs to be planned, weather needs to be checked, permits need to be obtained, and then of course the backpack needs to be packed!
I filmed this video before a recent 3-night summer backpacking trip in California’s Sierra Nevada mountains. I used the Hiking Lady Backpacking Checklist to determine what I needed, and then laid it all out on my living room floor to make sure I didn’t miss anything.
In this video I explain what I am taking and why. Happy trails!
