Full Moon Hike August 15th

From David Gunderson at the Mount Rainier Warehouse:

The full moon in August appears to be the 16th, which is a Saturday. So, I will lead the full moon hike up the Pinnacle Peak trail to Plummer Peak on Friday the 15th after work. Anyone interested in joining in, please bring a flashlight, warm cloths, and a snack (your dinner) and water. Car-pool from the Warehouse leaving at 5pm or meet at the Reflection Lake trail head to Pinnacle Peak at 5:30. If it is rainy or overcast, the hike will be postponed until the September full moon. Any questions, call me at the warehouse X3337.
