South Renton Park and Ride, time TBD

From the Narada Falls parking area, we will snowshoe to first to Reflection Lakes, then work our way up to Castle Bump, not the saddle between Castle and Pinnacle (however we may also tag that if snow conditions are super stable). Long range weather forecast indicates that the potential for awesome views from our vantage point should be awesome.

As with all snow adventures, weather and/or avalanche conditions may necessitate a last minute change in plans, so flexibility is important.
