The next two events . . .
Bonnie has rescheduled the Triple Falls hike for this coming Saturday (May 16th). As usual, meet at the ALC campus at 9, or at the trailhead at 9:45 (but let Bonnie know you plan on meeting up there). Greg and I did the hike on Saturday, it was gorgeous. The bridge beyond the falls is out, but you can still get the wonderful view. This is a moderate, 5 mile in-and-back hike. Bring food, water, camera, dog, etc. You'll need money for gas, but there's no trail fee.
The June hike has been postponed a week. Meet at 9:00 on June 13th at the ALC parking lot to tackle Dog Mountain. This is a very strenuous hike, described in my hiking book as "insane." But I hear it also has the most magnificent wildflowers in the northwest! It's a steep, seven mile trek, I wouldn't recommend it for beginners.
Dogs are welcome, but there's lots of poison oak along the trail.
Bring lots of water, layers, trekking poles, bandaids, food, camera . . .
You'll need money for gas and snacks, don't think there's a trail fee on this hike, either!
