Bonney Lake Park-n-Ride @ 4:30 pm.  Please park in the west side of the parking lot against the wall.  Address is 184th Ave E & SR 410 in Bonney Lake just off Hwy. 410.

There are two possible destinations for this trip depending upon snow / road conditions.  The primary destination is Martin Peak to which will afford excellent views of Mt. Rainier under the moonlight.  This should be a total elevation gain of around 1,100' and 5 miles RT.  If conditions warrant a alternate destination, we will proceed up Mowich Lake Rd, but will not reach Mowich Lake.  Either way, expect to be breaking trail on the trek.  Please have a good working headlamp and extra batteries, due to travel under the moonlight.  We will be traveling on a primitive road, please ensure you have tire chains for your vehicle.  Please note, the trip is schedule for odd # of people for safety reasons.
