Yaktrax Review - mamanonthetrail.com

I received this item at no cost to facilitate my review. All opinions remain my own. I don’t know about you, but we don’t stop hiking just because it’s winter.

Wee Woollies Review - mamanonthetrail.com

 I received these items at no cost to facilitate my review. All opinions remain my own.  We are a “rain or shine” family, which also means that we get outside whether it’s +35˚c or -35˚c.

I received this item at no cost to facilitate my review. All opinions remain my own.  Baby, it’s cold outside! Time to bust out hats and mittens and boots and snowsuits!
