A few years ago I posted pictures of a trek I did into Independence Lakes. This past weekend the family and I packed in there. This was our first trip using a pack horse. All went well despite the "bronc" my brother-in-law loaned me.
I don't have any period tack or even a pack saddle. This Spring I made panniers that fit over my old work saddle. Like I said, not period gear but it's a start.
For more pics look at the blog. http://idmountaineer.blogspot.com/

Just to brag some more on my lovely wife, we just found out that in this picture of her she is carrying two children. One on her back and one on the inside. She's a regular Marie Dorion!

Wonderful news Mat! God Bless you both!

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them;
They shall not be ashamed,
But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.
Psalm 127:3-5
