Sunday, Aug 11, 2013: Join Jeanette Domber and Rabbi Jamie for another fabulous wilderness adventure.
Join us for our last hard core hike of the season, an 8-9 mile round trip hike to Pawnee Pass in the Brainard Lake Recreation area. We'll climb about 2000' feet from the trailhead to the pass as we pass alpine lakes and meadows, with plenty of wildflowers, and a few creek crossings.

You must be in Colorado shape to do this hike. Plan on being out all day and pack accordingly (hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, rain gear, a warmer layer just in case it's cool as we climb up to 12,550 ft, plenty of water, and food, etc.). We will return to the car pool location by 5 pm at the latest (but usually earlier). Please RSVP for car pool location and just in case we make any last minute trail changes due to weather
