June 20 evening trip to the Sea Cliffs. I (Carl) am is leading a trip to to the Sea cliffs on Wednesday evening. Understand that due to a messed up shoulder I can’t climb or belay and plan to watch other climbers the sunset. I am leading this because I can’t climb, run, or play the guitar so I am bored to tears (metaphorically). Also, several folks recently asked how to get there. Call or if interested 723-9323. We need at least two climbers and I don’t climb these days.
June 22-23 “Solstice ridge hike.” We are doing a “solstice” hike at night on Juneau Ridge. It’s being led by Pauline Strong. 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 Pauline by Thursday at 6PM if you are interested. 723-6213.
July 6-8. Hike around Douglas Island. Would your schedule allow for a little sea level-based exploration? Weather dependent, lets make the infamous” around-Douglas-Island hike” happen with a fun group of folks who can take the morning of Friday, July 6th until the evening of Sunday, the 8th off. It’s ~30 miles round trip, and I’ve heard folks have marathon-run it in a day so we should be able to hike it in three!
Gear should be relatively straightforward: tent, sleeping bag/pad, waders (maybe), tidebook!, cooking gear and grub, etc.
If you’re interested, please send Ray Friedlander an email at Friedlanderay@gmail.com and put “Around Douglas” in the title.
Here are some reading resources to conjure up excitement:
