Puyallup Fred Meyer 1100 River Road 7 a.m.

We will skip Berry, and instead scramble Poch Peak for the high elevation point of the day.  I expect the scrambling to be fairly easy.  I doubt we will see any snow as the warmest winter on record continues.  I expect the vertical gain to be around 3000'.
