There are actually lots that you can do to ensure that you will enjoy hiking in the rain. The most important thing is to be prepared with the right clothing for the wet weather and the cold temperatures. You will need a good waterproof breathable rain jacket and pants. Don’t go cheap on your rain gear as you will quickly find out that it is either not waterproof or does not breathe. If your rain gear doesn’t breathe it will cause the moisture from your body to condense on the inside of your gear resulting you getting wet not from the rain but from your own perspiration. Get a jacket made by a good outdoor apparel manufacturer like Columbia Sportswear, The North Face or Patagonia and you won’t go wrong.

Wed given a lot of thought to how to give Mason a sense of ownership and accomplishment in our day and the first thing we did was have him pack his own pack. We let him choose a few things he wanted to carry and included a piece of group gear so that he could contribute.
