Bill will be hosting this Meetup. Meet him at Le Buzz and look for his sage green Subaru Forester. To avoid biker/dog conflicts at Le Buzz Cafe, meet way out in the parking lot near Tanque Verde Road on the east side of McDonalds. Please arrive early enough so that we can depart for Mt. Lemmon shortly after 8:00 AM. Bill's cell number is 307-2455.
A description of the hike from Bill: "We'll hike the Marshall Gulch Trail to Marshall Saddle and continue down the Wilderness of Rocks Trail to a couple wading/swimming pools for the dogs. Yellow columbine will be in bloom along the creek beds. Expect mountain temperatures to be about 30 degrees cooler than Tucson with a mix of sun and shade. The Forest Service has temporarily suspended parking fees at Marshall Gulch."
