Description: Escape the heat with cool climate and cold microbrew. The first part of this get-a-way is a search for a WWII B-18 bomber which crashed into the San Francisco Peaks back in 1941. We’ll start at the Snowbowl lodge, hike part way up a ski route and then go cross-country a little ways. The crash report is vague on the B-18’s location but hunting for it is half the fun anyway. Following the hike, it’s off to downtown Flagstaff for our 10th annual pub crawl. To make for a more relaxed trip, we’ll stay at a hotel in Flagstaff near the pubs Friday night. Saturday morning, we’ll hunt for the B-18 then return to the hotel to shower and change. At 7pm the crawling begins. The plan is to meet at Beaver Street Brewery, hit some more pubs then “crawl” back to the hotel. We’ll return Sunday. Arrangements can be made if you want to meet up with us at any point. This trip is limited to paid members. See Membership and Dues.
