Announcing a new Meetup for Rocky Mountain Madness!What
: The "It Couldn't Get Any Worse" Brainard Lake SnowshoeWhen
: Sunday, December 19,[masked]:00 AMWhere
: Boulder REI
Boulder, CO 80301
Weather has pooped on my original plans, so lets cruise on up to Brainard Lake and check the place out. We'll probably end up climbing some of the nearby 13ers, so if you're just in for the snowshoe you may be returning on your own.
On that same note, we may poke our heads up above treeline and end up running back down to the parking lot tail between legs.
The weather looks really bad, with a 50% chance of snow and high winds as of right now, but you never know when it comes to our Rocky Mountains. I for one refuse to sacrifice a possibly salvageable day in the mountains!
