Taken in June of 05,this is my then 8 1/2 year old son Liam on the Half Dome cables. What a tough little nut, he carried a 18lb ruck from the backpackers camp by Upper pines to the Brunnell cascade before I had to take it and give him a break. On our last day out we were camped a 1/4 mile from the HD/JMT trail.
At the bottom of the cables were two others, I asked "whos going up first, they said something about water or waiting for others, Liam chirped up and said "Come on dad, lets go".
33 miles hiked that trip. Hell yes I'm proud!
