We summited our local mountain on Saturday. 9,000 ft, ignore the fact that I live at 7,000, and the trail head probably starts at 8,000 so we only hiked less than 3 miles total.
First time for Ike to be that high without the help of a car, we've only passed the continental divide three times in his short 6 months.
I'm super proud of her, its the first time she has hiked with her dad without him carrying her for at least a few minutes. Also she teaches all of us, you are never too fabulous to be a mountaineer.
We didn't give him the option of hiking down. I think my husband is amazing to carry both of these guys. Thankfully he does, I'm not in shape enough to carry the little one yet. But soon I'll have to be for backpacking! eek! Thank goodness we have two different carriers so Brent can double up.
