||Hello Hikers! The upcoming July hike scheduled for
July 17 is up Straight Creek. This hike starts at 11,150 and gradually
climbs to 12,600. The trail head is the west side of the Johnson
Eisenhower Tunnel. Normally this time of year the wildflowers are
spectacular. The snow pack hasn't totally left but I am hoping by the
17th everything will be clear. We will meet at Wooly Mammoth Park and
Ride Section EE at 6:15 for a 6:30 departure. The reason for such an
early start is this hike is all above timberline and we don't want to
get caught in any lightning storms. On the way up we will stop at the
Georgetown Visitor Center. The after hike is yet to be decided. This
hike is 6 miles and 1,500 ft of elevation gain. It is basically the
same as the Silver Dollar Lake hike. Please bring your sunscreen, rain
gear, lunch along with the other 10 essentials. You may also like poles
and traction devices. The traction device may help if we have to
navigate a snowfield. We will make real time decisions on to proceed or
not if the conditions warrent.
