The plan has been
modified to one night camping based on the number of participants.
On June 29th,
Saturday, we will hike to visit cascades, 2 waterfalls, gorge, and will finish the day with a potluck dinner at the campsite.
On Sunday, after breakfast, we will hike for 2 small waterfalls, have a lunch,
and take a shower, before heading to home.
We will stay at
the group camp site # 230 which has a shower facility nearby.
Parking is available in front of the camp site and there is also a turning point and an overflow parking space in case if we need more space. The cost will be ~ $10
per person depending on the final number. The campsite check in/out time is 3:00 PM. Dogs are not allowed at the group camp sites.
At the end of the day, we all will be hungry. A potluck dish is
a main dish, salad, or side/dessert item. The Park is an alcohol-free place. We will have time to prepare meal. I will fix a rice dish
