Sandbeach Lake is accessed from the Wild Basin area of RMNP  It is at 10,300' elevation with the 13,911' Mt Meeker towering above the north end of the lake.  It boasts a sand beach along one end, which will be snow covered for us, but a good place to relax.  The snowshoe will start with a steep climb up the Copeland Moraine, then moderates for the majority of the hike.

We meet at the CoorsTEK parking area across the street from the CMC building in Golden at 6:30 for a no later than 6:45 start.

Roundtrip mileage is 120 miles for a carpool split of $36.  There will be no RMNP part entrance fee.  The tailhead is at the park entrance at Wild Basin.
