Leaving Saturday morning, Sep 10th, works for more people that leaving Friday night, soooo, that’s what we’ll do. We’re getting a good list going with both boys and parents. IF you are interested in a little backpacking up to an alpine lake and can go up with us, let me know by Sunday.
A little more info. (See orig email for more). More info and packing list to follow…..
NEW – MEET AT LINCOLN PARK AND RIDE AT 6:00 FOR A 6:15 SHARP DEPARTURE. Breakfast at MacD’s is optional. Healthy Breakfast is recommend.
It’s about a 2 1/2 hours drive up to the head trail of Upper Cataract Lake. Silverthorne exit, down Hwy 9. Next exit to the trail head is by Green Mountain Reservoir.
About a 6 mile hike, 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 hours depending on if we stop at Surprise Lake and have lunch. It’s not going to be a race
Like getting ready for the 14er hike, start during water and eating bananas now.
Be at the next Troop meeting 1/2 hour early. Boys in PLC, we’ll need to work something out..
Want to know more of what Upper Cataract Lake looks like? Check out these new pictures I found:
Join us on Troop 88’s backpacking trip to Upper Cataract Lake in the Eagle Nest Wilderness Area! The trailhead is about 22 miles from exit 205 off I-70, north of Silverthorne. We will do about a six mile back country hike with a stop halfway up for lunch at Surprise Lake. We’ll depart PEPC at 5:30PM Sharp on Friday, Sep 9th and car camp at the Lower Cataract Lake campground for the night. We’ll stop along the way for dinner. After a nice breakfast, we’ll backpack up the lake for a day of fishing and exploring. We’ll head back down Sunday, Sep 11th mid-morning. After ditching our backpacks, and if we have the energy, we’ll hike around Lower Cataract Lake and see the Cataract Falls.
More on the hike and the route we will take, check out this really cool Blog-photo journal some scouts- age boys made. (Hint: They caught about 55 fish; most were Brook Trout, COOL!) http://cooutdooradventures.blogspot.com/2010/07/upper-cataract-lake-for-many-years-i.html
If you’re interested, plz reply to ten.tsacmocnull@reicnomrj by this Sunday. (IF YOU SIGNED UP LAST MEETING, PLZ RE-SIGN UP as I want to know if you are still interested). Moms and/or dads are welcome and needed. The amount of boys we can take WILL depend on the number of seats we have and the number of VOLENTEER PARENTS we have. First come, first serve, with the boys signing up last meeting at the top of the list. I’m hoping to see some of the older boys and some Venturing Crew attend and share their outdoor skills. Right up their alley!
We will meet little before at our next Troop meeting at 6:00 on Sept 6th. It will be a quick meeting with a lot of info, so don’t be late! Also bring your Medical Form. We will go over packing and break our group into “buddy” patrols. I will send out a packing list in the next few days along with directions and a map for the boys to print out.
Cost: $5.00 Use Fee, (but I’ll not sure if that’s per car or per person, or per day, I’ll let you know), Dinner on the way up. Breakfast that we’ll cook together Sat morning. Scouts will pair up for Sat dinner and Sun breakfast. Each scout will pack a lunch for the hike up on Sat and back down on Sun. Snacks and gas money for the drivers.
