5 Things Women Should Bring Hiking In Yellowstone National Park
Planning a hiking trip to Yellowstone National Park is exciting! Yellowstone offers breathtaking sights like canyons, hot springs, and geysers. During your adventure, you’ll be surrounded by beauty and wildlife like bison and elk in their natural habitat. Be sure to capture the moments with your camera or phone. You’ll be making memories you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
Here are 5 things that women should bring when hiking at Yellowstone to help you enjoy your trip to the fullest.
1. Water Bottle
You know you need to stay hydrated, especially in warm weather! But dehydration can sneak up on you in the high altitude, even when the weather feels cooler. Especially if you’re visiting Yellowstone from lower elevations, you’ll want to be sure to drink plenty of water. Be sure to be prepared for your hike and bring plenty of fresh drinking water with you. A sturdy water bottle that will hold enough water to get you through a few hours should do the trick. You can always keep back-up gallons of water back at your vehicle or campsite to refill your water bottle as needed.
2. Water Bottle Holders
You’ve packed your bags and filled up your water bottle. You go to look through your bag for a snack and a drink, and… your water has leaked out all over your bag!
