From west branch trailhead 6mis north of chambers lake and colo 14, we will take west branch trail 7 miles and 2400 vertical ascent to beautiful Island lake, camp for night (Saturday).  Sunday-optional climb of Clark peak (12,951) and point 12,654--easy ascent from camp with a round trip of 5 miles and total vertical of 2400.  Those who prefer not climb may spend the day fishing in Island Lake or Carey Lake, or lounging in camp.  Spend Sunday night at same camp.  Monday, pack out, drive back to Denver.  Odds are good that we will see Moose, as they are ubiquitous in the Rawah wilderness.  Get the kinks out of your backpacking and camping gear, and spend an enjoyable Memorial Day far from the crowds--and--avoid the I 70 MESS.
