Let's do a sunset hike of Green Mountain! Starting at the Gregory Canyon trailhead, we will hike all the way to the top of Green Mountain, then we will eventually end up on the Gregory Canyon Trail on the way back. The total distance is 5 miles and the elevation gain is 2300'. Bring water, a HEADLAMP and SPIKES! Bad weather i.e. pouring rain or snowstorm cancels.
A chaos tradition has been to have a monthly potluck, so I thought I'd start it up again to celebrate my Birthday Month! The CHAOS potluck is a great opportunity to meet new friends, hear about upcoming trips and plan new ones. ~ Please BYO plate, cup and fork to be good for the environment. ~ Consider coming by bike or bus. The Skip and 204 stop 1 min walk away! ~ Bring a main course, desert, or drink to share with 4-8 people. (Reminder that vegan means 'no animal products,' so no meat, milk, fish, eggs, honey, or other pesky ingredients, like 'whey.') I have not led a Chaos Adventure since before I went to New Zealand! But I'm looking forward to re-connecting over dinner and planning some soon! Looking forward to seeing you, snow or shine!
