The Boys first backpack trip.
Frozen Head State Park
2000 Ft climb to Frozen Head Mountain
A nice lady convinced me to let her take our photo together because she said her kids are grown and all they have left are the photos.
I think Malon likes to Hike.
3 hours and 3 miles of non stop climbing of 1700 feet we made it to our campsite at Tub Springs.
Gummy Bear treat after the climb.

Getting water from Tub Spring.
The look out tower on Frozen Head Mountain. 3,340 feet. Malon made it up the first of three flights of stairs before his fear of heights got the better of him. In a few minutes he conquered his fears on his own time and made it to the top.
He was clinging for life at first but running around shortly.
We stayed on top for a while and took some time to read.
The evenings are long on backpacking trips. Fortunately, with some master woodsmanship learned from our father I was able to get the wet wood going.
We sat around the fire and played Yahtzee and Farkle on my phone. The curious combination of old and new.
A good night sleep and ready for the morning.
The packs are ready by 8 in the morning
