June 23-24 “Solstice ridge hike.”  Friday night is going have much better weather than actual.  We are doing a “solstice” hike at night on Clark’s Traverse (Gastineau-Roberts-Sheep-Clark-Perseverance Trail).  The sun will set and rise without getting completely dark, especially on a mountain top. The traverse should take about 8 hours. We plan to start in the evening and by done by about 4 AM.   Contact Carl by Thursday at 6PM if you are interested.  723-9323.

There is nothing scheduled Fourth of July Weekend.

July 14-. Mount Ernest Gruening. Carl Reese is leading a trip of Ernie G. The plan is to bike to the moraine at  Herbert Glacier Friday night (July 7), probably after work. July 8 climb Mt Ernie G and return to find drinks chillin in the river by the moraine camp, and stay again at the moraine camp, and return to town Sunday morning. This trip requires glacier travel, it’s fairly long, some bushwhacking, and some fairly easy rock climbing.   Contact Carl by Thursday at 6PM if you are interested.  723-9323.
