Alder Bench hike
Wayne led 23 of us up the Alder Bench trail, which is a little steep in places and has 5 or 6 switchbacks on it to get to the top of the hill. Everybody made it up 2.5 miles to a nice spot for our lunch and a chance to enjoy the scenery.
Most of the wildflowers are finished blooming at this elevation (9250 ft.) but there were still a few doing their thing.......
DUE TO THE CONFLICTS OF HIKING ON FRIDAY WITH OTHER ST EVENTS, FOREST SERVICE TRAINING CLASSES AND MY SCHEDULED COMMITMENTS, WE WILL GO BACK TO HIKING ON THURSDAYS, EFFECTIVE THIS THURSDAY.
WE ALSO WILL HAVE OUR MOONLIGHT OUTING THIS THURSDAY NIGHT ON SHAW MESA. WE WILL START THE CAMPFIRE AT ABOUT 630PM AND PLAN ON EATING AT ABOUT 730PM.
MARY & I WILL BRING THE BRATS, DOGS, BUNS, DRINKS AND TABLE SERVICE. PLEASE BRING A DISH TO COMPLEMENT THE DOGS & BRATS TO SHARE WITH EVERYONE.
