Join us as we journey to Rocky Mountain National Park on Wednesday, March 26, to welcome Spring for 2014! We will meet at 12:30 pm at the Sprague Lake Picnic Area – look for the crowd. Hopefully, conditions permitting, we will have some folks there who would like to stay to start and stoke those fires in the grates and set things up! Those participating in our adventure snowshoe will then form carpools to the Bear Lake Parking Lot where we will put on our snowshoes and come DOWN the trail to Sprague Lake, an easy 3.3 mile downhill trail with some fantastic scenery! [Note: “Easy Snowshoe” means that Beginners are absolutely Welcome and Encouraged to participate!] The journey should take approximately 2 hours. When we get back to Sprague Lake, a roaring fire (conditions permitting) and a picnic lunch of sub sandwiches, fruit, chips, and cookies will await us complete with sparkling wine.
Email Karen Gerber ( ) to reserve your place for this fun event. Then send in your check for $10 per person to ensure your participation in this adventure by Thursday, March 20.
