Alpine Club planning events

By The Tri-City HeraldMay 15, 2014 

The Inter-Mountain Alpine Club is planning the following events:

-- Car camping/day hikes to Eagle Creek and Dog Mountain, Saturday and Sunday. Campers will drive about 21/2 hours to Tucker Park near Hood River to secure camping sites, then will head 20 miles to Eagle Creek to follow a trail up a deep, wooded canyon. The next day, there will be a hike at Dog Mountain, 12 miles from Tucker Park.

-- Backpacking school, Monday. This session focuses on how to put together a pack and how to select and plan trips.
