Hiking and Sun Protection

Summer is right around the corner and warmer temperatures are finally on the horizon! Backpacking season is here šŸ™‚ With the warmer temps also comes more sunshine and Iā€™m looking forward to a good sun kissed glow on my face from a hike in the mountains!! Our bodies and health benefit from the vitamin D the sunshine provides; however, too much sun is equally as harmful to your skin if you are overexposed.
