This weekend, we took Sage on her first overnight backpacking trip in the San Bernardino Mountains. Our hike in started on Saturday late afternoon. We climbed 6.5 miles, 2,700 feet, and arrived at our campsite just before sunset.
After running a half marathon that morning, Peter carried 50lbs (Sage included) up the mountain without uttering one complaint. I had 27lbs, didn’t run a half marathon, and felt like I was going to die. I need to get in better shape. Sage did great. She was happy getting dirty, playing in the tent, and taking a nude swim in ice cold water! Clearly she has her Dad’s tough genes.
