    Your pics are very nice to watch! Great to see you and your son with a backpack in nature. And guiding him to connect with some universal values of being.

    I would like to take my boys out for a few days hike, but they are both growing gray hair and claim to be too busy. I didn't take time to do those things when they were young. We sometimes make mistakes. I am glad that you are taking the time, and you always will be as well.
    That reminds me of the song (when you coming home dad I don't when but we'll have a good time then son) The only song I ever heard that makes me stop and think every time I hear it. Every new dad should listen closely to it.

    Thanks SOOOO much for posting!
    I can hear your pride

    It very much reminds me of Balls and Sunshine.
    Sunshine is 13 years old and on the final leg of being the youngest triple crowner. They are now in Montana.
    I met them on the AT last year and hike with them through the Dragon's Tooth area. She was ONE STRONG HIKER!!

    I just love seeing kids on the trail taking responsibility for their own being.
    Makes for strong people

    Thanks again for sharing.

    That's a great thing to do with your son, and he looks mighty happy in all those pictures.

    Life flies by and one day blends into the next, but memories like that trip provide snapshots in your mind that you will never forget. Always take the time
