Took the clones out for a backpacking trip again. This would have been the older’s third trip but last years was canceled due to all the wildfires. And it was little bro’s first trip. He was pretty bummed to be left behind before so he was excited to join this time. Big bro has turned in to quite the natural, he was tromping off way ahead of us and did a good job staying hydrated. Little bro did pretty good and kept up but hadn’t quite learned the lesson of why we drink lots of water, but still did pretty well over all. They were certainly a popular pair on the trail. As for the trail itself it’s not too bad. The trial head is about 8420, and the campground is about 9100′ and about 2-1/2 miles long. Although it does feel more like 3, the maps of the area seem to all have some scale issues so I would not be surprised if it was actually three miles.
