Traveling with a baby is an interesting thing. They add all sorts of challenges to any trip . Long flights, strollers, nap schedules, and car seats all seem to pile up and complicate what is supposed to be a relaxing vacation. Sometimes, you may even find yourself wondering…is all this effort worth it for a baby who won’t even remember the trip? All these experiences and memories will eventually disappear, like a fading dream. So is it worth it?

Wild Inheritance, the second episode of Born Wild, follows a recently widowed grandma leading three generations of family into Wyoming’s Wind River Mountain backcountry. The Vermilye-Phillips clan has been coming here for nearly half a century to fly fish, backcountry ski, rock climb, remember old stories, and create new ones. This trip, equal parts reunion and memorial for the family patriarch that first brought them to these mountains, carries the added weight of ashes. Through the imperceptible tutelage of time and wilderness, with his grandfather as invisible guide, our 12-year old narrator, Walid, discovers the true reason his family will always return to this granite temple.

As parents, how do we teach our kids that there is a world beyond social media, standardized tests and soccer practice? Join Eddie Bauer athlete David Morton and his seven-year-old son Thorne on a week-long stand up paddle boarding journey down the Karnali and Bheri Rivers in Western Nepal. “There’s a basic paradox to parenting,” says David. “You have to keep your kids safe, but you have to teach them to take risks and follow curiosity. Life is undeniably richer with a little bit of daring.”
