Meeting at Lena Lake trailhead 11:00 AM on Saturday.

This is an overnight trip so you will need tents, sleeping bags and such. The normal camp is the Lena Creek forks area, but I would like to try and camp a lot higher this time to save time on summit day. There is a pretty good spot near the base of the mountain, with creek access, but we might be camping on snow.
