a few thoughts....
If you take the pace slowly, your kids should be able to hike 6 or 7 miles per day. But that means you have to give them time off to rest at some point. The route you have suggested works fine...

Resolutions for 2015?
We’re not big believers in making New Years’ resolutions. For one thing, if something is that important to us, we’ll try to work on it, no matter what the date. And if it’s not that impor...

Re: Re: Camp Lake in Emigrant Wilderness
That's good news. I know they had it closed for quite a few years for habitat restoration. That lake gets hit pretty hard. Good to know it is recovering/has recovered.

Two miles in
In Yosemite, May Lake fits the bill, if you can get a permit for it. It's pretty popular. Above Carson Pass you have both Winnemucca and Round Top Lakes--also by permit only, but both within ...

Really depends on the snow year
