What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
Gila Cliff Dwelling Visitor Center Road
Meet at 5:15 or as close to that as you can arrive. This is an out-n-back trail so each person can go at their own pace; reach the top or turn around whenever you choose. We will depart the parking lot no later than 5:30. If you will be later, come on up the trail. BRING: ** Headlamp in case of a late return (sunset is 7:30 with some twilight after that) ** Water ** High energy snack ** Wind breaker/ warm hat (High temp forecast for today is 64*) I suggest bringing trekking/hiking poles (but only if you have rubber tips to give the poles traction and prevent metal scarring of the rock. Rubber tips, or 'trekking pole tennis shoes' as I call them are about $6 at REI or Summit Canyon Mountaineering. Take your poles when you go to buy the tips so you get the best fit since there are at least 2 different diameters).
Hi ladies! This Knotty Night will be a discussion - no gear required. We will talk about your experiences and reflections from last weekend's canyons, talk about group gear, items that should be in your pack for every canyon, and where we find and how we use beta. Diana has graciously offered her home for our meeting location. I will pm each attendee the address. If you did not get it, please let me know. Thank you all!
