Details

We will snowshoe to the ruins of John Walker's home, checkout the sunset in the west then go onward to the foundation of what was to be John Walker's gift to the President - a western summer house. We will return the same way on John Walker's Trail and Castle Trail and hope the moon shines on us on our way out.

I changed the night trip to Tuesday, hoping we will avoid clouds. Unfortunately Frank Burzynski will still be out of town so he will not be a co-leader as first planned.

Bring your head lamp/flashlight, I suggest wearing heavier downhill ski pants and jackets for night snowshoe trips because when the sunsets it gets colder. I will send out a weather update the day before. At this time, it might be about 30 degrees and light winds of 6 mph. Please bring your 10 Essentials, also a thermos with a hot drink..
