Due to the large Norse Peak wildfire, the destination is changed to Mt. Rose near Hoodsport and Lake Cushman.  Registration for this trip is closed, I am not accepting any more participants except for an assistant leader.

This will be a social paced hike.  We will travel at the pace of the slowest person to make sure everyone reaches this nice, satisfying summit.  Trekking poles are required.
