6 Wednesday hike Photos

It was a bright sunny day with a little snow on the pretty route around the north end of Sentinel Mountain (around the bottom).  Four of us made a quick trip along that trail and even extended it a little.  So far, the elk have not come back (for several years).  I hope to go back at least three times this winter to make sure the elk have abandoned the location as their winter home.

Because of ski season opening tomorrow, we may lose one of our hike leaders (??? not sure).  We will hike on Mondays through the winter.  Boots for "skinny snow" and snowshoes or XC skis when it gets deep.   

We will start at 10 a.m. each Monday at the Visitor Center.  We would appreciate your preferences for hiking sites. The weather will be a factor in our scheduling, of course.  Our winter hikes are usually somewhat shorter, depending on depth of snow.  

Community Events coming up:  
. . . . .Thanksgiving for all churches tonight at 7 p.m.  (Wednesday) at the "White" Chapel on 149.  All denominations are welcome to enjoy an evening of music and the significance of Thanksgiving.
. . . . . Thanksgiving dinner, mid-day on Thursday at the community center.  People from all over the SLV and beyond will be there.  The line forms at about 11 a.m.   Last serving may be about 2:00 p.m.  No charge, but donations accepted near the door.

The team today.  More are welcome.

Reaching up!
