Backcountry Kid/Kid's Photo's

Postby maverick » Tue Jul 05, 2016 12:24 pm

Share any photo's of your kid/kid's while in the backcountry.
I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

My first day hike after my knees were fused. My oldest was visiting friends, so it was just me, my wife and Sarah. We camped at Upper Pines in Yosemite (2010) and hiked to May Lake.

Thanks HM and Jim, great shots, hopefully others will contribute, it is motivating to see our future generation of backpackers!

Not the Sierra, but my daughter and her family from a short overnighter last November in the San Gabriels.

made me go back to some older photos. This was in 2010, kids were 12 years old, and we had a very snowy JMT that summer. This from the descent into Le Conte Canyon from Muir Pass, some place below Helen Lake. Kids were old pros at that stage - this was their third Muir Trail.

I'm still rather convinced that you can achieve more than you've ever dreamed of if you just lower your standards.
