8/2-3: Meany Lodge Family Hiking WeekendMeany Lodge Family Hiking Weekend
August 2-3, 2008
Head up to Meany Lodge for an adventure filled weekend of hiking, great food and family fun. Meany Lodge will be adventure central August 2 and 3, hosting outdoor activities for all ages.
Hikes are organized for both Saturday and Sunday in the Stampede and Snoqualmie Pass areas. There are many to choose from, some suitable for children as young as 2. Swim in a mountain lake, or take a berry hike through acres of salmon berries, huckleberries, and wild strawberries.
On Saturday afternoon, Michael and Doreen Johnston bring their dog sledding team to Meany to demonstrate summer pulling. Following Saturday's scrumptious dinner and dessert, the Johnstons present an evening program about dog sledding.
When you come up for the weekend, you have the choice of staying in the lodge or pitching a tent in your own secluded spot on the property. For those who wish to stay in the lodge itself, we have three hostel-style dorms for men, women and families. Whichever sleeping arrangement you make, the entire lodge facility is available for your use.
The cost for the weekend is $35 for adults (age 14+), $20 for children (age 6-13), and the little ones 5 and under are free. Fees cover organized hikes, activities, overnight accommodations, afternoon snacks, a scrumptious dinner (including a delicious vegetarian entree), hearty breakfast, and a sack lunch for Sunday's hikes.
