Blue Mountain – My Son’s 1st ‘Hike,’ Dec 20 2014

TW and I took my son and dogs out for a walk. When I attempted to place him in the kid carrier, my son (2 yrs old) declared ‘I wanna do it,’ which was his way of saying he wanted to walk on his own. The road/trail are quite steep (~1,000 ft elevation gain over 1 mile on the ascent), so I figured he would tire quickly, but this was not the case. With some hand-holding on the steep sections, he managed to walk all the way to the top on his own.
