Meet at 10 AM at the Farm Boy Drive In Restaurant at the end of Exit 95 (Maytown/Littlerock) from I-5,  which is south of Olympia.

This is an opportunity to explore the 445 acre Mima Mounds National Natural Landmark.  No one knows the origin of these strange mounds.  We'll have our lunch together at the conclusion of the hike, where a privy is available.  A Discover Pass must be displayed by each car at the trailhead.
