      Yes, unfortunately, it is there.

    Except for an unanticipated free-fall proving the hazards of gravity, the hike was awesome. All those contours on a map come alive when experienced in person. And I want to thank everyone who came to my aid.

    I have obligations at home. Since I don't know when I'll get back, I'll have to cancel.

    So what is the expected finish time?

    July 24, 2013

  • Bryan R. M.

    I-90 and 405 cross at the EastGate Park&Ride, an ideal place to group up into fewer cars.

    July 20, 2013

    • Jenny G

      I will meet you at the Eastgate Park & Ride. We can figure it out there. What time are you meeting?

      9ish - the west side of the parking lot

    Annette can I join your group at the park and ride in Maple Valley at 9. I was going to ride with another hiker but she is not coming now.
    Thanks

    Is this 8 miles round-trip?

      Elevation on this hike is deceiving. Since you go down to Snow Lake, and back up. Not sure the total climbing footage...but guessing closer to 1500 feet.

      Yes, 8 miles roundtrip 1300 feet elevation I believe.

    I'm planning to join the group at the Maple Valley P&R. I would like to ride but can drive if needed.

    I just got an email from one of the members of this meetup strongly suggesting I split this in 2 groups on the site, because of the 12 person rule, or bring less then 12 total. I called the rangers, as long as we are in the parking lot, it does not matter if there are 20 of us, or if it is posted on our meetup as 20 or a million attendees. The only thing that does matter is we HAVE TO split into 2 groups of 12 or less, BEFORE we leave the parking lot and hit the trail. So, PLEASE, wait until we decide on who is going in what group before hiking, so we have 2 groups of 12 or less. Thank you everyone. First group will start hiking around 10am. Second group will leave 15 minutes later.

    July 23, 2013

    • Vivienne C.

      Thanks for being so patient in sorting this out for us all Steve. I am carpooling from Tacoma with a couple of others - personally would prefer the 'slower' group, but will do as I am told, I promise!

      Oh no problem. I am glad I was told about this rule, because I did not know that, and will probably post 12 person limits from now on, or just create a couple posts of 12 people. No worries. We will divide the group by who is carpooling together and hiking speed...we can even have 3 or more groups, so it will work...no worries. Thanks you!

  • Hope B.

    I am new to the group - would it be pointless for me to come just in case someone doesn't show? (The event says that it's full...) And if so, is there anyone in Queen Anne who would like to give a complete stranger a ride to her first meetup event? :)

      Oh it is a 12 person limit. So I will add you to the event Hope.

      You are on the waitlist...if a spot opens up you will get it, and I believe be notified. Thanks Hope!

    Anyone going through downtown Seattle that I could catch a ride with please?

    July 22, 2013

    • Ric K.

      I can pick you up on the way to the Eastgate park and ride. email me a good spot to pick you up. 8:40 sound good?

      July 22, 2013

    • Kelly

      Well, I'd be coming from West Seattle so let me know where you work approximately.

      July 22, 2013

  • Ric K.

    I was going to ride up there, but I can take the car if a carpool is needed. If so, I live on Queen Anne and can pick up along the way.

    July 20, 2013

    • Ric K.

      9ish should be good, I think.

      July 22, 2013

    • Tatiana S.

      Ok, I will see you at Eastgate, the west side of the parking lot, at 9 AM. Thanks!

      July 22, 2013

  • Annette

    southenders, there is a P&R in Maple valley that is the next exit after Fred Meyers exit. We can all meet there then I won't have to backtrack.

    23033 Renton Maple Valley Rd Se, Maple Valley, WA 98038

    Go hwy 18 east. exit 231st st. go right. Make immediate left at light Renton Maple Valley rd (hwy 169). P&R is on the left.

    July 22, 2013

    • Bill V

      Works for me also.

      July 22, 2013

    • Vivienne C.

      Sorry I can't help with the carpooling this time - I am coming from Tacoma but only have my mini cooper this week and already have one passenger, which is about as much as I can take!!

    Fred Meyer and 9 am work for me. Just need to figure out which is the north side . . .

    July 22, 2013

  • Annette

    I'm coming from Covington, going HWY 18 to 90. Any carpoolers?

    July 21, 2013

      Annette & Beth: Covington Fred Meyer parking lot (north side)? 9am?

    I am coming from Tacoma. Is there a park and ride in Covington? If so, that would work for me.

    2 groups...RSVP's closed.

    July 20, 2013

  • Steve C

    Hey Steve J, are aware that 12 is the group size limit especially in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness? The fine is over $100 and each person in the group gets one. Just saying.

    July 20, 2013

    • Vivienne C.

      That was my thought too!

      July 20, 2013

      A former member

      Okay thanks...we will do two groups from the parking lot. The faster hikers can go first. Slower paced, like me, can go 15 minutes later. 2 groups. Plan on the first (faster) group leaving @10am. Second group 15 minutes later.

      July 20, 2013

  • Kelly

    Anyone coming from West Seattle that I could catch a ride with please?

    July 20, 2013

  • Vivienne C.

    Yeah! Finally a hike that I can make, and one that doesn't sound too deadly - nice to see a few familiar faces are coming too:)

    July 18, 2013

    • Vivienne C.

      Yeah - yes Vicki that would be great!! I'm happy to pick you up again as it's on the way, but we will be in my mini cooper this time (we should still be able to stash all our stuff). Can you just send me an email with your address again please?? Think we probably need to set off about 8.30 to get there for 10.

      July 20, 2013

    • vicki s.

      will do and sounds good for the time!

      July 20, 2013

    I would like to carpool from Seattle or other meeting place, if possible. Thanks!

    I'd love to go early-- like even the morning. Any one else want to go early? Might bring a couple friends. I've been dying to go to snow lake!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
