Backpacking can be daunting....the gear, the logistics, the food, the "know-how," the forest service rules and regulations. I remember when we had to learn all of that nearly 15 years ago. Now with 4 small kids (ages 10, 8, 6, 4), backpacking has become even more complicated. We are getting ready to spend a month in Wind River, Wyoming backpacking with the kids. The food is prepped, the bags are packed, and the car is fueled up. We're ready to spend 1 month on the trail with off-days only to resupply and enjoy the nearest towns.
Only three things are certain:
1) We'll be together
2) We'll have an adventure
3) We'll experience soul rest
...that's the only certainty we need.
It's time for a season of renewal.
These are good days
