Camping with the girls

Me and the girls went up to the uintas for a little camping trip without mom. She didn't like the idea but we had a lot of fun. Even had to pack out an injured hiker which doubled the mileage. I don't think the girls like riding that much on day one, but they were good about it. Just wanted to share a picture.

My daughters often joined me or trips into the Uintas. There mother never wanted to come. So it was always Father/daughter outings. For the most part they came during the summer months when it was warmer, By time hunting season and cold weather come round, Their mother had them dancing in Nutcracker and other activities that took all the free time.

Enjoy the time with them, They grow up too fast are gone.

Early on we hiked in and lead the horses while they packed in camp, Then we ride the horses during the days and then hike back out. as the girls got older, I bought more horses and bigger trailers. My middle daughter was recently asked by a boy she has been seeing a lot of "what is your best childhood memory?" and her answer was camping and horse rides with Dad. I never dreamed all the time getting dirty, going to the bathroom in the bushes would out do all the mall time, shopping and ballot with their mom. Your daughters will remember your taking them. And if you try hard, You will have some photos of girls with dirty faces smiling as they ride.

And before you know it, Those girls will be helping you, rather than you doing all the horse chores.

BTW, What trailhead and lake did you ride?

My daughter is 25 and still wants to go camping with me no matter what the transportation....hike, horse or canoe. She'll go anytime. My boys are more likely to turn down the chance. My grandchildren will be next

I am so glad that I spent time with my kids when they were little. My daughter rode with me all the time. My son started riding with me when he got interested in girls. A girl might turn down a date to the movies, but how could she resist an invite to go horseback riding with him and the mom? I kept shoes on the "girlfriend" horse until he moved away from home.

we started at the crystal lake trailhead because the wall lake one was full and went past wall the the notch pass and camped down by the little lake below the pass. I don't know if it has a name or not. The picture though is by wall lake on the way out.

That looks wonderful. I wish I had had that childhood memory.
I did, however, get to do several weeklong sea kayaking trips with my dad, which are some of my fondest memories.

I also enjoyed the stories and the pics. Great job you guys are doing! I'm a firm believer that kids who grow up with horses learn to love and care for something/someone besides themselves. Looks like you guys had a lot of fun!!
