Until recently, I had never considered myself an ‘outdoorsy’ kind of girl. Sure, I love a good day at the beach, tickling my toes in the grass, laying under a tree... but when it comes to ruggedness, like hiking or camping or ‘roughing it,’ you could certainly count me out. Wearing sneakers was like putting me in jail.
After our trip, which included stops in the Grand Canyon and Yosemite National Park, I am more comfortable with the idea of spending a weekend in the great outdoors and discovering how beautiful nature is sometimes. Here are a few snaps of my attempt to stay semi-stylish on our hikes.
