We both realized it may be the last "backpacking" trip before Squak makes his way into the world, I didn't have the most amazing nights sleep ever and honestly, it's a total pain in the ass to crawl out of the tent in the middle of the night to pee more than once! It was a great hike though and we're both already scheming and planning for Squak's first real backpacking trip.
Oh, almost forgot, the beer picture! Ian bought a six-pack before our last backpacking trip of Dales Pale Ale, from the Oskar Blues Brewery, and the plastic ring broke when he was carrying the beer into the house, which punctured a few of the cans (which are frankly expensive for canned beer). So Ian emailed them and someone came to the house and gave Ian nearly a case of Oskar Blues beer! Just thought I'd throw it out there, if your looking for good beer in cans for your next backpacking excursion (which is a strange new luxury for Ian, a result of the short pregnant lady hikes we've been doing) you might want to try something from Oskar Blues.
