We just got back from our first family backpacking trip.
We really lucked out with the weather-- the forecast called for cloudy skies and rain showers. We were so sure of getting wet that we stopped to get Claire a new coat on the way out of town. But we had beautiful sunny skies on our way out! The views were breathtaking. We had very few bugs. The cabin was amazing. And the hike back today was just foggy. We feel very lucky.
(didn't you know spray cheese is the ultimate backpacking food?)
Back here at home we've got our rain though. (Big surprise.) Time for naps and laundry! School starts in two days and there's a LOT to do. Hope you had a good one!
