Well, she wanted to so I tool here on a low impact hike. Ended up 8 miles. She was introduced to Mr. Cholla and Ms. Catsclaw. They welcomed her warmly. She's been properly introduced. She did well. The next day the complaining started. Next hike will be some climbing lets see

Not this time. She was pretty sore the next day.

Yeah, that is a hard hike for sure. I think the hardest part of taking my kids-when they are willing-is finding one they will enjoy.

Going to get her some hill climbing soon. We'll see if she still likes hiking. Shes not an avid hiker but likes to do one every so often.

Canyon Sin Nombre might be a cool spot. My boys really liked going through the slot canyons and climbing up the hills in this area. Not too hard either.

Over the last ten years I have taken my daughter up the Palm Springs tram and backpacked in 2.5 miles to Round Valley. Then go to the peak the next day with daypacks. It is a good way to introduce them to backpacking. Over the summer, when Borrego is too hot.

That is a great trip.
