Navigation Practice

As I need to give my knee some more time to recover before engaging in anything toooo strenuous the dogs and I are going to go somewhere in South K Country (West of Longview) and practice map reading/navigation.

This will be a fairly low key day (note the start time!)

If you would like to come along, then bring snowshoes, microspikes, compass, food, water, etc.

We can stop in Longview or Black Diamond after for dinner.

    I can't go this w/e, but really need to practice my skills (just took courses in Jan). If there is interest in another one of these days, I'd be very keen to join.
