    So where exactly was the meetup? When I clicked on the location Google maps sent me to the fire/Ranger station in pioneer on silver drive. They said I was at the wrong place and that "Carson pass" was 47 miles up 88 past Kirkwood so I went there. The tamer didn't know about a group and asked what our destination was Cuz the trail splits. Well I was already 1.5 hrs late so I figured it'd be hats to catch up to you guys so I hooked on a bit but the elevation was killer, so I left. And I just noticed at the bottom of this post Nysia changed location to carson pass on pioneer Creek Rd IN pioneer. I'm confused.

      You should have gotten an email from the instructor with directions to the hike. It was a bit confusing since the instructor changed the carpool location from Pioneer to Placerville Station (which was the train station). The hike was from the Ranger Station just past Woods Lake to Lake Winnemucca. Sorry, the directions were a bit confusing to me too. I researched for about 20 minutes the night before.

    I neglected to register after clicking going so I'm afraid I'm on the waiting list with my husband Kelly. You all enjoy we will make it next time.

    I'm hoping to still attend. My mother in law may need my help that day. I'll find out in a few days if she will and update. I'm wondering if any of the fires going on in the area will impact the vegetation around or walk?

      I'm reg'd. I thought I might have to drop to help my mom in law but her date changed so I'm good to go.

      Don't know why my phone said wallets instead of people. Since we're out till 5 I'm wondering what kind of amenities are available? Restrooms? Water?

    I am going to an event in Sacramento at 9 am and since this one goes until 5 pm would there be anyway to join up with people on the trail? Kirk

    Indeed, that is a good question about the condition of the plants on the hike. Will they have been damaged?

    I called Candis last week to register and she called me yesterday saying it was full, but that I could get on a waiting list if someone dropped out.

    Hello, excited to join :) I took a foraging class a couple weeks ago and learned a lot. I also met a guy that does morel, chanterelle, etcetera mushroom hunting. I don't remember the group he was doing it with and can't find anything local online. Do you folks do any of that? If not, do you know who does?
