    Anybody still going on Sat/Sun?
    I will find out tomorrow night if I am going this weekend. Depends on Hamhockers schedule.

    Watch for ice pellets!

    Hey guys, Wish we could go but have other plans for this weekend. We are expecting 50% chance of ice pellets tonight and 70%for tomorrow. So be carefull on the way in. We went to Dinky line camp weekend before last and it was a great trip. Went in at Savage Gulf RS on friday late afternoon, 3.6 miles to Dinky Line Campsite and the took the Mountain Oak trail over to the North Rim for a great view on the way out which was 6.3 miles. This swas my wifes frist backpack and hanging trip. She is definetly hooked.

    We are thinking maybe Virgin Falls next weekend....

    I stand corrected guys,... and gals, They have upped it to 100% chance for ice pellets on the mountain for tomorrow, be careful!

    We'll definitely have to take it slow on the way there. But it is supposed to end in the afternoon so we shouldn't have to sleep in it

    We made it safely, although it rained all day and we couldn't see the nice views. Here's my home for tonight. I'll be cuddled it my hammock gear downy goodness. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1359162516.627495.jpg
