We'll follow the Jungle Creek road 9701 to Liars Prairie then head for the summit of Teanaway Butte. Goal is to get in some conditioning, enjoy the predicted sunshine and have a nice lunch break at / near the summit. We will retrace our steps to return to the 29 Pines sno-park.  This route is a long flat approach with a short steeper climb up the butte.
