A lovely hike along Lake Crescent. It's a long drive so we'll start early and stop for dinner on the way home. We'll hike as a group, at a leisurely/moderate pace, with LOTS of stops, for comfort, for photos, equipment adjustment, admiring the vistas, etc. LOTS of stops will slow down our overall progress along the trail. If you haven't hiked with me before get in touch with me so we can chat (via email or phone) about our mutual expectations for the day. Some of mine are that the journey is more important than the destination and, if we are going to make the effort to organize our gear, drive to the trailhead and hike up the trail we should spend as much time in the endeavor as possible. For the safety and enjoyment of everyone on the trip I need to know what the overall experience and preparedness (clothing, equipment, conditioning, courses taken) of everyone on the trip is. If you haven't hiked or snowshoed with me before you need to provide me with this information so that I can be sure that this is the right trip for you to go on. Optional stop on the way home for pie or a burger, drivers' choice!
