    Thank you so much Alison. I got some new ideas I can't wait to try. Unfortunately, my obsession with travel size bottles has gone to new levels. ;) Enjoy the John Muir Trail.

    I learned a lot of information about products for hiking, as well as for backpacking. I will be adding some of the items to my hiking adventures. Thanks Allison for hosting this event....
