It was a glorious autumnal morning – bright sunshine warming the russets and golds of the fallen leaves which whirled an enticing invitation to put on my boots and head out into the fields. And then a wail from beside me reminded me of the fact that I was now responsible for a significantly smaller pair of feet than my own when it came to hiking boots…


At barely a week old my daughter was in a sling and roaming the woods and fields with me and we haven’t looked back. They say there is no such things as bad weather, only the wrong clothes. Admittedly I’m not about to recommend carting a small baby out on all day hikes in sub-zero temperatures but I have discovered and am still learning that the right route and the right kit can make accessing the great outdoors possible in most conditions. Sharing some of those routes with other outdoor parents is the purpose of this blog – enjoy!
