Indian Creek Snowshoe (Teanaway)

Looks like there is a dearth of hikes this weekend, how about checking out Mt. Stuart views?

WTA link: http://www.wta.org/go-hiking/hikes/indian-creek-snowshoe

While this is not a difficult hike, it could be a long one. So please prepare accordingly; carry extra water and food as we'll be burning calories. 

Val's Maxims (customized): 

NOTE-1: You need to stay together, as a team or not go with us! Turning around only splits the group, usually not a good idea. Trips last sometimes 13+ hours! We don't hurry, have lunch, take care of each other and play it calm and safe.

NOTE-2: BAG-CHECK: Got to have proper winter gear! Equipment: Ice-Axe, SnowShoes, MicroSpikes, Ski-Poles with Snow Plates, Headlamp, Extra Warm Cloth - packed water tight,  Full Zipper Rain Pants, Rain Jacket, Gloves, Extra Water-Tight Mittens, Water-Tight SnowShoe compatible Boots, Gaitors, Dry Socks, Ziplockbags etc..

Driving Directions:                            

To get there, from Seattle drive east on Interstate 90 over Snoqualmie Pass to exit 85 and turn north onto State Route 970. Drive 5 miles before turning left (northwest) onto Teanaway Road (Forest Road 9737). About 7 miles up the valley, when the road (and river) splits, stay right on the North Fork Teanaway Road and continue 2 miles to the end of the plowed road at the wide Lick Creek Sno-Park.

    Since there was not enough snow, we elected to go to HEX mountain.

    Ample sunshine and panoramic 360 views; to the south included Mt. Rainier; to the north, Mt. Stuart and beyond.

    Everyone did well and had fun.

    Wolves? I hope we don't run into any!

    Looks like a group associated with Sierra club is doing this route on Sunday. http://cascade.sierraclub.org/node/3380

    Anil, are you offering to drive? If so I'll pull in the three of you on wait list.

    Alternate more challenging snowshoe or hike in that area is going to the base of Jolly Mountain from Cayuse Horse Camp near Salmon la Sac Creek. In fair weather, top of Jolly Mountain is a great destination, but that is not on the menu for tomorrow.

    Thoughts?

    Chris and Lee on the waiting list; If I get another volunteer driver, I can include you both. My truck only accommodates 5 total. Please note if you haven't signed and submitted a waiver required by the Peaks group, you can print http://files.meetup.com/1783201/PEAKSWaiverForm.doc and bring it with you tomorrow.

    If there are additional drivers, we can expand the group a bit.
