Last month I wrote a post on my hiking guidebook for families Best Hikes with Kids: San Francisco Bay Area. In that post, I encouraged people to comment and talk about their favorite Bay Area trails with kids. In the meantime my book got a review in Bay Nature magazine, a blurb on Daily Candy, was part of a contest on SFKids and soon you should hear me on KQED give my Perspective on creepy crawlers. Seriously!
Now I’ve selected the 2 winners via randompicker.org and I would love to announce them today. Drum roll. The winners of my contest are … Ammo and Nicole!!! These two lucky winners will receive by mail an autographed copy of my book – sorry I can’t draw even when I try hard – and a bar of high quality completely delicious dark chocolate to motivate them to go hiking! That’s because I’ve now included “dark chocolate, bittersweet please” in my list of must-haves for hikes. No less.
Now you may be curious, what Bay Area trails did people share that they like so much? Here is what parents had to say on Frog Mom:
Obviously if you don’t have my book yet, you should get yourself a copy right now. According to my husband, it almost reads like a mystery novel. Yes, it’s that thrilling, take it from a reliable source. Aw, ok, it’s not quite The Game of Thrones but it’ll help you get fitter and the kids will become total creatures of the trails. How’s that for thrilling?
