Friday the 12th, 7:30am at the Green Lake / 6th St park and ride.  

This will be a two night trip up to Robin Lake.  We'll head up Friday and set up camp.  Saturday we'll explore the area, enjoy the scenery perhaps for those willing take a dip in the lake.  Sunday we'll descend and get back to Seattle at a reasonable hour.

While open to all members, I expect this to be a strenuous trip.   This should not be your first hike of the season!
