Moderate paced hike with lots of stops for photo ops and to enjoy the scenery. Long lunch stop at Upper Crystal Lake. If you have not hiked with me before, when you contact me about signing up for my hike (via phone or email), please be ready to provide the following information: your full name, telephone number, whether you are a member (what branch and for how long), what your hiking experience is (both with and outside of The Mountaineers), and where you live so I can figure out carpooling. So we can all have a safe, fun trip, everyone is required to carry the Ten Essentials, and be properly attired - no cotton, no blue jeans, no sneakers.
