We all know most dates are not written in stone. Weather, Fire, Earthquake, Rock Slide, Flood, Bridge out,
Tsunami, or Invasion from Outer Space, etc. Just might change things.
Some will fall by the wayside and others hikes will be spontaneously added by members at our meetings,
as is our tradition.

These Backpacking treks (BELOW) are hard dates by group consensus, which are written in stone.
This year is another ambitious schedule that will offer many diverse environments, an aspect we love about
the great out-of-doors. A schedule that will test commitment, vigor, resources, patience, and some days…
much resolve, but challenges worthy of all.

Havasupai Falls – Grand Canyon National Park,-- Rescheduled to 2021
Pacific Crest Trail HWY 4 (Ebbetts pass) To HWY  50 (Echo Lake)
Backpacking to El Capitan in Yosemite NP
Chilnualna Falls Trail – in Yosemite to Buena Vista Lake
