Those wanting to connect for carpools arrive 6:30. We will try to depart by 6:52 a.m., and anticipate arriving at Echo at 8:30, so gas up prior. Remember to have all hatches open for inspection for bare bones inspection on your clean boat upon arrival at Echo!!!

Come enjoy this lake (normally not too windy this time of year, view snow line mountains (and probably along water at upper Echo Lake. I will take pictures for any takers!
Echo is a very special place, nestled in at over 7,000 foot elevation, situated at the top of Echo Summit on Highway 50.
Parking is very limited..Come while snow lines the upper lake south side ...which makes it absolutely pristine to view Ospreys and weave through the islands at Upper Echo.
INSPECTION / FEE: The family owned Chalet will inspect your boats for muscles, and they take it seriously as I do. Bring your boat clean, dry, and open all hatches for inspection. Attitude counts for us in a volume discount for not tying up their parking lot (CARPOOLING HINT HINT!!!!). It may simply be $5 per boat, or even more including launch.
Bring a sack lunch for picnic. It will be one of the most pristine places you've visited in a kayak.
Level III Event: Afternoon winds we take seriously at Echo, and there is a chance we will have to divert same morning, so you must check in with me, if you are driving directly to event, as the wind gods up here in this primitive area lack mercy driving white caps at times in direction of boat launch area.
