Monday Madness- Win a Pair of Vasque Kid’s Hiking Boots

THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. Congratulations to Charline, entrant number 97. You were selected by random number generator as our winner. Happy Hiking!

 

This summer, my family is making a trip up to the Pacific Northwest and Olympic National Park will serve as centerpiece for our travels.   Visiting Olympic means we will encounter a wide variety of outdoor opportunities, and many of them will be wet.  Olympic’s rainforests receive over 150 inches of rain per year, making for lush scenery and damp trails which means waterproof hiking shoes are a must.  Since my son is in a hurry to catch up in height and shoe size with his 6’5″ father, last year’s boots will not suffice.  This year, we decided to try Vasque.

Vasque footwear is most commonly known for making high quality (and highly rated) hiking, trail running, and multi-sport shoes for men and women. Recently, I discovered that they also make shoes for kids! What I love most about the Vasque kid’s shoes is that they are essentially miniature versions of some of the most popular adult styles. Hey- if it ain’t broke, why fix it?  After all, kids tend to do more running, climbing, and exploring than adults so why not give them the top quality design and function that we expect in our shoes?

After giving my son a chance to hike, run, climb, and play in a stream (his feet stayed 100% dry!), I am confident that the Vasque Breeze hiking boots will serve him well in the soggy Hoh Rainforest.  If you are looking for an all weather boot for your son or daughter, this could very well be the perfect shoe for your child.

Read my full review of Vasque Breeze Ultradry waterproof hiking boots.

    Our daughter doesn’t like hiking as much as we do, but when she does go with us, she really enjoys Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area in Tennessee. They have the coolest geologic formations from sandstone arches to large indian rock houses (large rock overhangs along canyon rims around the Big South Fork of the Cumberland River).

    We took our kids to both Acadia National Park and Shenandoah National Park within the past year and they both provided wonderful hikes for our entire family. My kids can’t wait to go back to Acadia!

    However, we also love hiking in the parks right in our own back yard!

    One of my favorite hikes of last summer with my kids was Forest View Trail and Big Trees Trail in Tahoe National Forest. It was a great adventure that made us feel like squirrels as we climbed the giant roots of a fallen tree.

    Our favorite family hike so far was in Valley of Fire in Las Vegas. We hiked to a place called Mouse’s hole where an outlaw had been holed up. The combination of cave paintings, red rocks, and wildflowers was breathtaking. The hike was relatively flat and comfy. We even brought the dog!
