4:30pm sharp -  Highpoint exit 20, I-90, turn right, then right again.  We meet just past the stop sign (don't drive all the way to the Tiger Mtn gate or trailhead)

Bring your headlamp, and extra batteries as we will likely do some portion of the return trip in the dark.  We will keep a steady moderate pace throughout, in order to maximize our daylight.
