My little one loves to lead us on excursions... we once summited "7 mountains in a day"... in Oklahoma... (It was sunrise mountain ... 7 times. Elevation gain per trip is likely around 150 feet). Often times in the morning I'll grab a bag with water and food and we won't see camp again until late afternoon.
*Note: We have from time to time had to go over LNT when she wants to forge off trail. But that's what parents are for... right?
