Get in some practice for all those long hikes you know you want to do this summer. Plus. if we've timed this right, the rhodies on this mountain outside of yes, Rhododendron, (well, Zigzag) should be in their full glory.

    Matt, thanks for leading this. I'd love to go, especially because Zhong is signed up, but I'm scheduled to usher at PCS at 6:45 that night, so I'm afraid the timing would be too tight for me. For others considering it, check out This is the perfect time of year to do this hike.
