New! Snowstorm Lewis Mountain loop hike

Thursday, August 8, 7:00 am Register by Email

As Debra Van Winegarden states in her blog Earthline: the American West, “A daring and airy exhilarating climb on the longest knife ridge in the La Platas.” We park at the y between Kennebec and Columbus Basins. Hike to the “Notch” then climb the NE Ridge to Snowstorm Peak. Proceed to the knife ridge which connects the two peaks. Proceed onward from Lewis Peak and drop back into Columbus Basin and return to the cars. We will carpool from the meeting spot. Carpool $3.00 No Dogs. Limit 8.
