Come celebrate National Parks week with free admission to Mt Rainier, a fun snow scramble, and predicted sunny conditions.  Will be longer than described, as we will park at Narada Falls, and hope to make a loop up the gully above Snow Lake, run the ridge to the summit, then descend towards the Castle saddle before returning to the road and route back. 

Aimed at current scramble students who have completed the snow field trip, but others welcome.  If interested and qualified to be an assistant leader, please inquire.  Thanks!
