My husband and I used to make a weekend trip as often as possible to the Adirondack State Park to hike the High Peaks. There are some breathtaking views on the summit of these majestic mountains and I am always in awe at how beautiful it is.
As a family we still really enjoy hiking. One of our favorite places is still to venture a trail in the Adirondacks. One of our quick hikes is Mt. Jo. It is challenging enough for the kids and the view is really great, especially with the fall foliage.
One snack that is always a staple in our backpack is an easy trail mix that my husband and I have been making for years. It's great at any time- road trips, day trips even for school snacks. It really could not be any easier!
One jar of your favorite dry-roasted peanuts.
One bag of plain M&M's (this time I used m&m minis)
1/2 Container of dark raisins.
In a zip-lock bag, dump peanuts, M&M's and raisins. Close bag and shake until well mixed. Enjoy!
Tip: I wash and keep the top of the peanut jar inside the bag to act as a scoop!
