9:00 AM at Annette Lake TH

Destination changed from Annette Lake to Castle Pinnacle Saddle due to lack of snow. Meet at the Longmire parking lot near the ranger hut at 9:30. (Trip will start from Narada Falls, but I prefer to meet at Longmire since the road is often closed.) Don't forget your ice axes and shovels! Leaders: Gay Gibson,, 206-898-0599 and Brad Gibson,, 206-852-8422.
