Good power bar for the trail

This is my first review of a product that I used for hiking.  The cliff bar Builder Bar is probably by far the best of the cliff bar line in terms of flavor and sustained energy.  I personally like the mint flavor as it is refreshing and gives your mouth a cool feeling.

They are easy to swallow and because they have a large amount of protein they give you lots of energy for a longer time than the carb filled sugary bars and gels.

You can pick these up at Target, Trader Joes, REI, Sportschalet and really almost anywhere that sells sports bars.

And it begins!

It all started in January this year when I wanted to hike Mt. Whitney, The tallest mountain in the contiguous United States.  I thought about starting a blog and tracking my progress and all my training.  I quickly got sidetracked with all the training and so I never actually started to post anything.

Now I have a little more time and I think it would be fun to keep people up to date with my training, hikes that I do, adventures that unfold, and any outdoor related gear I find or buy that I review.

As for now, as the summer is coming to a close I  will probably focus more on recapping my most memorable summer and also keep things up to date with what I am doing to prepare for my next adventure.

So thanks for taking the time to read and I look forward to everyone enjoying the adventures.
