Backpack with daughter and bf

3 miles of hiking • 750' elevation gain • 1 night

Wanted to get out and take our daughter's boyfriend and his brother out. It was the 13 year old's first backpack. Lots of stargazing on the most gorgeous night we've had on the mountain in a very long time. As in it was warm and no wind! Whoot!
