08/25/2016 – Rendezvous Ridge

"Never forget that the pressures of modern life are only a manmade game. You can take a break whenever you wish. It isn’t necessary to stress yourself to the level of those around you. Take nothing as seriously as your universal right to seek peace." ~by Markus Almond

Lee Helzer will lead "Rendezvous Ridge" with an estimated duration of 3 hours.

Meet at 6:30 pm in the pull out just before the parking lot at the end of Arctic Valley Road. We will head up to Rendezvous Peak then take the ridge back to exceptional berry picking.  After our mouths are blue and bellies full we’ll descend towards Ship Creek and catch a trail maintained by the local moose and bear population.
