So, it happens to all of us….you’ve been out in the mountains since before the sun rose, and now it’s been at least three hours of daylight.  Then, your stomach rumbles.  You hadn’t even realized just how empty your belly was, but when you start thinking about it, your angry appetite takes over your brain and all you can think about is getting something to eat.  Don’t beat yourself up because you forgot to stop by the store and grab some pre-made granola bars or trail mix.  Try making your own snack pack foods with these recipes.  That way, you can have a bulk supply of anything you will need:

Customize your trail mix, and only add what YOU like.. (via pinterest.com)
