We spent our last "free" weekend taking a nice long hike along a stretch of the Pacific Crest Trail. Ryan has hopes of hiking it properly one of these years, but in the meantime, he'll have to make due with short stretches of it a little at a time. This trail was the one passed Sheep Lake all the way up to Sourdough Pass. It's about 6 miles round trip, and about 1,100 ft in elevation gain. We took our lunch and snacks and water and made a go of it. It was a pretty nice day, and the kids did a really good job. There's a lot less complaining than there used to be.
