I decided to take my 9 year old, Jack, to Camelback mountain yesterday. I was curious how much longer it would take than the last time I went.
I brought an EZ-1000 & here is a picture of our hike, which was 1:30 up, & :56 down:
Here is a picture of Jack at the bottom:

And one of Jack’s shady cave — he found a few of them on the way up & down to rest in:
It took a little longer this time (last time 1 1/2 hours, this time 2 1/2 hours). But my heart didn’t feel like exploding as much as when I was in a hurry. Plus I had some company. Much better this way.
