Winter Trail Snack: Dried Fruits

One of the simplest trail snacks to put together that you've probably used during any season is a sort of trail mix made up of dried fruits! You can use any dried fruits that you like, but I really recommend adding uncrystallized ginger! It adds a flavor kick that you will be missing otherwise. One possible mixture: - dried apricots - uncrystallized ginger - dried pears - dried figs - dried cranberries This is great to put together ahead of time, and is also great to keep in the car for a bit of rejuvenation after a hike! You could also try: - dried apples - dried cranberries - dried .pineapples - walnuts Adding something like nuts or chocolate candy will turn it into more of a trail mix, but it still does the trick!
@danidee Thank you! @happyrock
@treedweller It seems @danidee gets hers where I get mine--Trader Joe's! Any food that typically carries organic food (and thus kind of off the wall things) will likely have it!
I love the flavor of different stone fruits, so I love the apricots in this. (I'd probably even add dried plums!) And @treedweller, I've seen it at Trader Joe's. It'll be in a bag labeled Uncrystallized Candied Ginger.
I've never tried the uncrystallized ginger before. Any suggestions on where to buy it? @happyrock
As always, I'm going to use this as a healthy snack for between workout classes instead of hiking, but it will work well. Thanks as always :)

3 Fun Outdoor Hairstyle Ideas
It's never too early to prepare for Fall. My friends and I just started thinking about outdoor activities during Fall and here I am looking through hairstyles for hiking. I'm that excited. Also, I want to share my curated list to everyone because I thought some of you might be interested in changing up your hairstyles for your fall classes or activities such as biking, rock climbing or yoga. Medium to Long Hair: Easy Pulled Back Ponytail If you're hitting the hills or biking this one is perfect. Your hair will look good for hiking photos and it's not to shabby for a post-hike meal at a diner. This is also a no-fuss helmet hairstyle. Buns are too snug. Styling Instruction: 1. Pull the crown of the hair into a ponytail. 2. Then flip hair through the ponytail. 3. Repeat until the hair at the nape is also pulled back. Tip: The ponytail should be stack on top of the previous tail. Curly Hair: Braidout Ponytail I know how annoying it is to have hair brushing on your face. Even though my hair is not voluminous I get pretty irritated by the piecey strands bugging my forehead. This is why i can't do bangs because I'll end up clipping them up most of the time. If you have the same problem, try this cute hairstyle by AlleySinai. She braids the front and bring it back into a half ponytail. You can also pull it back into a ponytail if you want to keep the hair off your shoulder. Short Hair: Fringe Braid Ponytail Same concept with the braidout ponytail except you're only braiding one part of the bang. Then tie the rest of the hair back in a ponytail. This one doesn't have to be perfect There you have it.
