My 2 Cents Worth

Response to too old?

There are different things you can do to mitigate the concern. Since I am over 60, I have started to take a Garmin Inreach SE... Satellite Communicator. With it, each day we can send a message back home saying we are ok... also could send for help in case of emergency. It gives us and those at home peace of mind.
You can also pick an easier route, where you only go a short distance in and base camp and also stay off the big lakes.
There is always the option to stay at a national forest campground at the edge and day trip in.
Good luck with your decision!
