Two years ago I took my oldest daughter, Daisy, on her first overnighter at age 7. This year her sister Kate was ready as well.

They're both really good hikers.

Daisy wanted to climb some rock.

Don't think I wasn't spying lines.

The best part part was hanging around camp having fun.

No getting around chores, especially in the mountains.

And of course it's always nice to chill.

I'm stoked to have two awesome girls that love to get out in the mountains.

Very nice, cute kids. My boys are 7 and 5 and I'm finding the older they get the more and more cool stuff we get to do. So far it's been lots of car camping, resort skiing, and gym climbing. We just did our first outdoor climb last weekend for Father's Day, it was awesome. I'm hoping this winter or maybe next, to do a mellow yurt trip with the family. We might try a couple of shorter backpacking trips this summer as well.
Keep up the good work! It definitely takes extra time, energy, and money to include the kids in these activities but it sure is worth it.

Hey Chris---We started from the Pacific Crest TH at Ebbett's Pass. We hiked north a few miles and camped at Upper Kinney Lake. There are several small lake/ponds along the way too. Pretty mellow hike--perfect for kids since there's no brutal uphills.

Ok, I had to go give my daughter a hug after that one. Nice work Pops! Pretty obvious those girls got their looks from their Mom! ;-)
