New Event: South Sister

From: Tom R.

Announcing a new event for The Bend Hiking Meetup Group!

What: South Sister

When: Friday, September 14, 3:30 PM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Event Description: The big South Sister expedition!!

We plan to meet on Friday afternoon then backpack from the trailhead up to Moraine lake. (3 miles. 1000 feet ascent).
Note that the sun sets at 7:30pm so we need to start hiking by 5pm to reach the campground and set up camp in daylight.
We will camp overnight at Moraine lake.
We'll start early on Saturday and climb to the summit of South Sister. It's about 4000 feet of ascent over 4 miles.
We'll camp Saturday night again at Moraine lake then backpack out to the trailhead on Sunday morning.

Please sign up early for this hike.

We will have a pre-hike meeting at Tom and Hazel's roughly one week before the trip so we can make sure everyone knows what to bring in the way of tents, sleeping bags, thermal mats, cooking materials, food, clothes etc. I'll post the date later.

This trip is for reasonably strong hikers who have already completed at least one hike with the group.
