,This weekend in our quest to hike up as many ridges as we can in our short summer season, we tackled the grand daddy of Douglas Island…. Mount Jumbo! Stretching 3200 feet above the city it looks right down over the whole downtown area! We loaded Mia into the backpack and began the climb. It didnt take long before we got into some incredible views
Mia is getting used to being in the backpack for longer and longer hikes and more importantly I am getting more used to carry her!
It took about 5 hours to make it all the way to the top and thats not bad considering we had a 2 year old and a 7 year old with us! Once we got to the top we were treated with some amazing views and of course some fudge! The only way I can get my kids to get up the mountain is if I bribe them with chocolate at the top!
Everybody should have the essentials in their hiking pack, Alaskan Beer and Alaskan Fudge! My favorite is the Alaskan Chewy, chocolate fudge with rolled oats and pecans! Its our health food fudge! Perfect for energy on the trail or if your just sitting around the house, you can feel good about yourself because its got oatmeal in it! Follow the link the order some for yourself today!
