Outing for Photography Section members. We are going to Francie's Hut. We will hike  in approx 3 miles on the road Sunday morning and come out late the next day (Monday). In addition to the 10 essentials, you will need to bring your sleeping bag, pad, pillowcase, personal care items, small towel, hut slippers. You will only need to carry in 1 days water (enough for 4-5 miles), there is a nearby stream and we will boil water in the cabin or you can use your own water purification system. The hut has cooking stoves, dishes, silverware. We will do a communal dinner but you will need to carry in your 2 lunches and 1 breakfast.

There are 20 slots available at this time in the hut. Section members only: You will need to get your hut reservation and liability release form completed before signing up for this hike. Go to, Francie's Hut make reservation, for July 6-7, 2014  (Sunday night). We are not saving spaces this trip, so you are paying $ 33.00 directly to the Hut system (they do not refund any money). Then contact the trip leader to complete the signup for the trip. This trip will close 5pmJune 25th so that we can coordinate the meal and drivers.


Photo opportunities include numerous fields of wildflowers, high mountain peaks, and Crystal Lake up the valley an additional mile beyond the cabin.
