7: AM
A Beginner/Easy Backpack trip for novices, those wishing to get back in shape, and/or testing new gear. Preference will be given to people who have taken the Tacoma Branch Introduction to Hiking and Backpacking Course this year or last. The next session is Thursday, July 19, 2007. Early start on Saturday, returning Sunday afternoon. Gain is 400' in and 1200' on the way out. Pace will be slow (elevation is over 6000') and we will stay together as a group so that we can share information and experiences along the way. If there is time after setting up camp on Saturday we will hike up toward Grand Park. Cost will be carpooling expenses (12 cents a mile) and a pro-rated share of the $20 campground reservation processing fee.
