Various P&Rs for carpoolers interested in reducing ferry costs.  Early ferry will allow us to meet at 9AM in Storm King Ranger Station parking lot for last use of heated bathrooms before caravaning to the trailhead.

See full route/place details for specifics, great thing about this destination is the ability to almost always get to the trailhead as well as its low avalanche hazard.  Plan on stopping for dinner on the way home owing to late arrival back in Seattle area.
