The Inter-Mountain Alpine Club is planning the following outings:
-- Day hike to Twin Peaks, Aug. 30. This is a 7.5-mile roundtrip hike to a ridge overlooking White Pass with an elevation gain of 1,900 feet. It begins at the south Pacific Crest Trail trailhead at White Pass and goes about 2 miles to the Twin Peaks Trail junction. Sign up by 8 p.m. Aug. 28
-- Backpacking trip to Mount Rainer/Carbon River, Sept. 4-8.
Participants should be completely self-sufficient, according to a news release.
Never miss a local story.
Bring food, cooking gear, water purification supplies, shelter, sleeping bag, and appropriate clothes for the weather, along with anything else you might need.
There will be an organizational meeting Aug. 24 to determine if anyone can share supplies to help lighten everyone’s load. Sign up by 9 p.m. Aug. 21. The trip is limited to 12 backpackers.
