To be arranged.

The plan is to hike to Lizard Lake via the Alternate Incline trail, continue on to North Butte (including a brief off-trail excursion to the high point of Blanchard Hill for those interested), Lily Lake and (time and energy permitting) Oyster Dome.  I’m estimating 7 miles of travel and about 2,000’ of elevation gain.  Pace will be a slow moderate.
