As a nature enthusiast and active parent, I couldn't be more excited about our upcoming backpacking trip! Two years ago we were set to go out on this trip but had to be postponed due to wildfires, so now preparing for this adventure has been both thrilling and challenging. This is the same place where my dad used to take our family and I am overjoyed I get to share it with my kid, and one of my dearest friends and her daughter. We are heading into Spectrum Lake and it is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been.
To ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience, I've carefully curated a list of the best lightweight camping supplies, backpacking-friendly food, and doTERRA, "Ready for Anything" products that might aid in our journey.

As the departure day approaches, I can't help but feel a mix of excitement and anticipation. Backpacking with my kid promises to be a heartwarming and unforgettable adventure. By bringing the best lightweight camping supplies, backpacking-friendly food, and dpTERRA's natural solutions to aid us, I'm confident that we will create cherished memories in the Monashees.
Exploring the wilderness together, hand in hand, is a beautiful way to connect with my child and instill in them a love for the outdoors that will last a lifetime. I still have my memories of backpacking with my dad.
Here's to our thrilling journey into the wild!
