  1. For those in south sound area, first meeting option is at 7:15am in the South Federal Way Park and Ride; 901 S 348th St., Federal Way, WA, 98003. To get there just get off 142 Exit on I-5 and west on 348th St. for about 1 mile. This P&R is on your left.  I will be there at about  7am and will park on the far-right side of the lot in a Dark Gray Subaru Forester.  Three others can carpool with me if they wish.
  2. Second meeting option is at 8am to 8:15am at the High Point Way Trailhead to Tiger Mountain, address 26415 SE 79th St, Issaquah, WA 98027.  If using Google Maps just put in "high point way trailhead" which gets you there better than the address.   


We will actually be going to West Tiger 3 via the Nook Trail, then go on to visit a memorial for "Joe"  between West Tiger #3 and #2, and finally return coming down West Tiger #3 Trail.  This is  about 5.5 to 6 miles and gives everyone a good work out due to going up 2000 ft in just 2 miles.  We should be done early and then get home early to enjoy the rest of the day!
