Bradley Backpacking Trip

I had a camp out scheduled with the scouts this weekend but due to another activity conflicting with it I was only going to have two scouts come. So the other leader and I decided to bring our 3 year -olds. It wasn't very far from the cars to the camp spot so we thought they would enjoy it. For the most part they really did. Bradley had a lot of fun. Here are a few pictures of our adventure.

Bradley, contemplating life at three...

Trying out the trekking poles

When I found him like this I figured it was a hint that it was about time for bed.

Sleeping soundly

What a beautiful morning. It was a little windy during the night but didn't rain. It also stayed pretty warm. The low for the night was only 50 F.

Waking up slowly and warming up in front of the fire.

Our view from camp.

Bradley checking that he had all of his toy cars before heading out for a hike.

"Pack-Pack" checked and in hiking position.

Heading out for the hike.

The trail we were going on wasn't matching the map we had so rather than getting lost we decided to turn back.

That is cool! When our oldest was 3 we took her on a backpacking trip on the Highline trail into the High Uintahs Wilderness area. We went to Grandaddy Lakes Basin. It was fun, she carried her own blanket and some t.p. She hiked in like a trooper for most of the 6 miles. I'm glad to hear we aren't the only ones taking our kids on backpaking trips. Good Job Bradley!
