Details

This 5th--and final--annual trip is a leader-favorite, incorporating the great Snowy Range hiking trail system in southeastern Wyoming with exciting and ambitious climbs, spectacular views, and long treks. Drive up Wednesday, check into Laramie motel, and drive 10 miles east on I-80 to do an easy 5-mile loop warmup hike. Hike full days Thursday and Friday, with a possible 2-mile loop hike in the Vedauwoos en route home on Saturday. Climb Medicine Bow Peak, a 9-mile loop trip, on one day and hike a lakes trail the other day. Which hike we do on either "full" day will be determined by weather.  Hikes are B Diff/C Easy levels.  'Motel ("dog friendly") camping' information in Laramie (about 45 miles east of the Snowys) and more trip details will be provided to trip registrants. Leader has reserved 4 double-occupancy rooms at the motel, and you'll pay for your room upon arrival.   Well-behaved dogs and owners (1 dog/ hiker) and dog-loving hikers welcome (limit 3 dogs)! Notify Leader of room-sharing preferences; whether you're bringing your dog; if you want to ride or drive; and any other pertinent information.  Leader will notify registrants 1 week prior to trip regarding logistics, "room-mates", etc. Mark this trip on your calendar TODAY!
