Sweet!! This, and all your other reports of your hiking/camping trips with Alexa, will become precious memories well worth all your (superhuman) efforts. I cannot fathom how you can tote 30 lbs of child, plus all the other stuff, along an uphill trail ..... maybe you should take up weightlifting? [:I]

Great report, Jenn! I agree with Janice that you are a gifted writer.

I've got to get some lessons from you on how to pack for an overnighter backpack with a toddler. My overnight bag is heavy enough, let alone adding Isaac's crud and him as well. I'm sure I'd be pushing 70 pounds.

Cutt; it did have the feeling of potentially gruesome about it. I'm really glad it did not turn out that way.

Hedda, Solo and Spring I'm blushing.

Sure Cody; though I think the trick in this case was location. With its proximity to the lodge; Quinescoe is pretty much front country. But that does make it perfect and perfectly doable for camping with young children. I'm pretty sure my pack + Lexie was topping out over 60lbs with a second trip to and from with the Sherpa child carrier and daypack.

Pushing should be the operative word! (Not lifting.) I've done a few tiny overnighters with a Chariot with the jogging front wheel. I'll try to post a tr...

Cathedral was a really good idea though, to get to the alpine.
