7:00 at Money Creek CG
This will be the 5th straight year I have scheduled this trip; one of these years we'll make it to the top. Those who have tried it with me before can contact me to sign up early. There are two possible starting points along the Money Creek Road. We have tried the first one and gotten as far as Cement Lake. The second starting point is a couple miles to the east; this route would be shorter with much less elevation gain. However, it may depend on more low-elevation snow cover than we can count on this year. New note (5/18): According to the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie NF web site, the Money Creek road is washed out at Milepost 2. This probably lengthens the trip enough to require a new destination. There is a good chance the trip will be exploratory, in which case students would not be able to come. Watch this space for updated info. Final decsion: instead of Crosby, we'll do an exploratory trip up Bald Eagle Peak (the summit at 6259', not the one labelled as Bald Eagle on the map).
