This was Bean's first multi-day hike. She was 2 and a half human years old.
On our first day, she and two of her housemates, Jane and Susan posed with her at a sign near the trailhead.
A couple of hours later, we had arrived at First Dinkey Lake with a view of the Three Sisters beyond.

We arrived at our campsite at Second Dinky Lake at around five that afternoon and took a well deserved rest.
Resting in the tent away from mosquitos.
On day 2 we got a late start and headed for Island Lake.
Beans sported a fashionable neckerchief while on the way there.
We arrived at the lake in the early afternoon.
After the rigors of the hike, a well-deserved nap was taken by all...
Rocks can be comfy if you are tired enough.
but not very long for Beans.
You have rested long enough.
Later in the evening, the rocks on the other side of the lake were bathed in alpenglow.

The next morning, Jane decided that Beans needed a bath and threw her in the lake.
Beans rolled around on the ground to dry herself off.
On our way out, we posed for a photo in front of the Three sisters.

We passed by a patch of snow where we enjoyed some Tang snow cones accompanied by a little brain freeze.
Really great unless you eat it a little too fast.
Beans enjoyed the snow, too.
She had already experienced snow on a trip to Mitchell Peak.
On our way out, we passed Mystery Lake which was hosting a blue dragonfly convention.

A great time was had by all.
We arrived back at the trailhead in mid-afternoon.
