    Summer is here and now its time for me to start my summer fun...my favorite of which is backpacking. This weekend will mark my first major backpack trip of 2016 (Warm up one).

    I decided to take my 8 year old son and 10 year old nephew along with me. This will be their first backpacking trip ever and I am honored to be able to be that person that gets to take them. I'm pretty stoked about it and can't wait to leave this Friday (so if you guys don't hear from me for a few days thats where I am).

    Anyways, below is the map itinerary and a few of the views that I will see. Ill take a ton of pics and when I get back will share more.

    It is beautiful there. I did part of this trail a couple years back by myself, did like 27 miles in all. Damn phone died on way there (start point is 5 hours from my house) so missed so many cool shots. Going prepared this time though.

    Have fun, I'm sure it's going to be kick ass and you'll be able to enjoy the small things even more than usual because of the kids who tend to be blown away from the smallest stuff. And it seems you have some pretty nice spots to blow them away anyway. Hopefully, this trip will remain a bright memory for both of them (it's quite likely).
