This will be a backpacking with kids. I'll be bringing my 3+ year old with me and he'll walk some, and I'll carry him part of the way. This trip will be canceled if the weather is too iffy as nobody wants to backpack with miserable kids. :) Email me if you have any questions!

Only register for this activity if you are also registering a kid. Ensure that you register both you and your kid. If you are unsure about anything please feel free to contact me. 

We will camp at Pete Lake or a mile further along the trail at Lemah Meadows.  Bear cannisters or bags will be used.  A details email will be sent a couple of weeks before trip.
