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?
