TOTAL MILES: 12.5

This meetup has changed due to weather.... I would rather hike or snow shoe in the snow than the rain...

CARPOOLING: RT mileage is 130 miles, give or take; we suggest a mileage donation of 10 cents/mile/person, or $13.00. Exact change makes it easier to divide among our drivers. No one will be turned away for an inability to contribute. Thanks!

Please read the entire hike description before signing up.

I am changing this hike to a snow hike / snowshoe ... we will start at the Barlow Pass Trail head and hike the PCT then loop around the upper and lower twin lakes. I know there is snow and they are expecting more.... I just dont know how much is there now.... I am going to call it a showshoe but we may end up carrying them part of the way... but we may been them too.... we WILL NOT stop on the way to rent snow shoes so please have them before.

It is supposed to snow all day Saturday... 4-5 inches so please come prepared for that... If you do not want to do this due to the change ... I understand... just please change your RSVP to not going.

Thank you!
