Recently, I spent the weekend with my sister on the Northshore of Lake Superior. This area just north of Duluth, Minnesota is beautiful -- you should see the golden tamaracks in the fall!
My sister Pat, who had a knee replaced, was a little hesitant about hiking these winding, uneven trails -- until she tried my hiking poles. I always hike with two cork-handled, telescoping (good for travel) hiking sticks and she loved them so much she bought herself a pair at the next outdoors store we found.
So why do we like hiking with walking poles?
When you buy your poles, be sure to get some tips from a regular user. You can’t do it wrong, but learning some technique makes it even more enjoyable. But don’t worry, with use, you’ll develop your own style, and I guarantee you’ll be a fan.
What trails have you hiked in your poles – and Juno clothing? We love our new rain and wind jacket for being outdoor. What trails to you recommend to other Junonians?
