Family horse-backpack trip Eaglecap Wilderness

Postby oldranger » Sun Sep 01, 2013 12:10 pm

Kathy and I took our son in law and two oldest grand kids on a semi loop trip aug 17-25. First day, about 7miles and 3100 ft. up was on horseback--a treat for the kids and a necessity for grandma and grandpa. Here are a few pics.

Happy hour!

First taste of fresh Brooktrout--hmm good!

Not first choice but ice cold, oldranger used wit and charm to separate these from two extraordinarily nice horsewomen the last night of the trip

Who can't do everything he used to and what he can do takes a hell of a lot longer!
