We have two families so far on this.
My daughter, Mei-ling, is 6 year old and it would be her and I. Mei has been on about 6 to 8 trips since she was 2.5 yrs old.
The other family is a Scott and his son, David, who is 6 years old and has about 3 trips under his belt.
Looking ideally to have a total of 4 or 5 families with children so that the kids can make friends and have peers to share the adventure with.
Later tonight, I will see about getting some photos up of the area.
Just earlier this month, I was at Powell Lake with my whole family...very easy to get to and very scenic.
Please feel free to post questions here or PM me.
P.S. The Route of this trip is not in stone, so if anyone has any suggestions or feels uncomfortable going off trail and would prefer something not off trail....we are open to suggestions.
