so one of my good friends has been turning into a home-body since his daughter was born and not getting out in the woods anymore so i volunteered my back and my dog, we would carry all his and her gear if he would just carry her and come along for a little alpine fishing. easy first trip for them. 5mi round trip with around 1300ft elev. gain. she did great and i think it gave him a lot of confidence. heres some pics. she's 10 months. lake waas at around 4400.
