Folks coming from Seattle, meet at the Mercer Island Park and Ride at 4:45pm so people can utilize the carpool lane. Or, at the Little Si trail head at 5:30pm. If you need to use the overflow lot (the first one you see), grab your gear and take the short trail to the main little Si parking lot (where the bathrooms are) to gather. 

We'll go at an easy/moderate pace. The goal is to stretch the legs after work and have a fun time. We'll have daylight pretty late so close to summer solstice and anticipate being back to the cars well before dark, but be sure to pack a headlamp just in case. Pack a dinner or snack for the summit. We'll have to take an updated summit picture for the Mountaineers website!! (This shot is my mom and me from quite a few years ago)
