So what do you expect people to do if they have a baby, and want to go hill-walking?
I agree with Dan.
We used to do it every weekend when I lived in the Sierra Nevada in California. Every Sunday, we used to hike up to a high mountain pass...9,000ft or so: myself, Gabriella and Xavier our two year old who we carried in Kelty Child Carrier. It was great fun.
Then he got bigger and started to walk with us, for a little while, sometimes I had to put him on my shoulders.
He appreciates the mountains, he is now 17, as does my daughter who is 10, and we enjoyed together going up Mount Marcy this summer in the Adirondacks, a 14 mile or so round trip.
The point is enjoyment as a family in the mountains and they may when they are older have an appreciation for mountain wild places; a worthy activity.
All the best,
I was worried that outside life would end once the creature was born but he loves it.
Only down side now is he's big enough to reach my hair!
Pricey but we got an outrageous deal from Go Outdoors so its worth keeping your eyes open.
