This is part of a Sequim beach house weekend. We will be carpooling from the house.

This hike is attached to a weekend stay at a beach house in Sequim. The house has a view of The Strait of Juan de Fuca, Mt Baker, and Victoria. It is a fully equipped, comfortable house with two bedrooms and other sleeping spaces.

 We will share all meals potluck style with two people responsible for each dinner and breakfast. Lunches on the trail will be your responsibility.

 The owner's goal is to collect enough money to cover the costs of the house. Typically, she wants $250 total a weekend. Please expect to pay about $40 for a two night stay to be collected ahead of time. No refunds unless the leaders cancel.

 There will be two Mountaineers activities, a day hike to Mount Muller on Saturday and a day hike to the Duckabush River and Murhut Falls on Sunday. Additional activities will be optional and might include dancing in the evenings and walks on the beach.  The dancing option is at the Seven Cedars Casino Saturday night - Deep Purple tribute band playing from 10-11:30ish.

 Items to bring include a sleeping bag, towel, money for ferry and gas, food to share, and personal supplies (including dance clothes if you want to join us) for two overnight stays.  We will be carpooling to the house Friday afternoon/evening and returning Sunday afternoon/evening.

 More information will follow for those people who contact the leader with an interest in signing up for these activities.
