Some of us are hiking the falls and Larch Mt on Sat, camping overnight and hiking Dog Mt on Sunday. If anyone is interested in joining us for the Dog Mt. hike, you may sign up here or on the Mt. Rainier & Beyond site.
You will need to carpool yourselves and meet us at TH.
If you are interested in driving down on Sat afternoon or eve and camping, you can call Timberlake Campground at[masked]-2267. Talk to LeRoy. We have reserved site #6 (already filled). Sites # 5 & 7 are both group sites for 4. Cost is approx $6 per person. It is up to you to make the reservations and see if anyone else wants to camp with you. Since it is cross posted on Mt. Ranier & Beyond, check to see if either of the other 2 people want to share camping/carpooling. Just let me know if you will be camping, etc. Thanks.
