    Awesome! Ten days to build a lifetime of memories! My daughter turns 10 later this year. I'm still working on her and you give me hope. Thank you for sharing your photos and experience!

    A big time Hooray for the two of you!!! I love it when the parents include their children. The two of you will always remember this, and hopefully more to come. Let your son know how proud we all are of him carrying his own pack and keeping up with the miles.

    ===> Awesome hike, awesome Dad, awesome kid! Those memories will be with you both forever. Hopefully his love of the outdoors will continue to grow, and he will pass it to his own offspring! Great job!

    I know my girls love every trip we take, and I think I remember and cherish it just as much as they do.
