Meetings

Our next meeting will be March 21, 2018
Mt. Whitney, and AT vs. PCT
Greg Fisher will present slides and commentary from a week-long backpacking trip on the PCT and John Muir Trail in the high Sierra in 2015, including a trek up Mt. Whitney to the highest point in the lower 48 states.  He will also include a few observations about the AT and a Top Ten list of differences between hiking on the AT and the PCT.  Greg has hiked over 300 miles on the PCT in California and the entire AT over a period of 50 years.
