Expect a long, glorious day of hiking.  Early start, lots of high country rambling and a late finish.   

My goals for this trip are as follows:

1. Be safe.

2. Make it to Grizzly Peak (or pretty darn close!)

3. Learn something.

My expectations for trip participants are as follows:

1. Be in good physical shape. 

2. Carry the 10 essentials.

3. Practice Leave No Trace principles.
