August 3-6 White Mountain

High Adventure Outing

This will be by invitation only to Scouts and Adults who have the most hiking experience, prior acclimatization, and proper ability for this hike.
Car Camp at 10,000' and 12,000' to acclimate.  Visit the Ancient Bristlecone forest and visitor's center.  After acclimation we will day hike White Mountain at 14,242', the 3rd highest peak in California.  This is a 14 mile hike (early departure) on a dirt road, but due to the high elevation it is a challenge to be respected.  It is a slow hike carrying plenty of water for the day (maybe 6 liters).  At least it isn't like Langley were we hiked up loose gravel sand.
Possibly a Wed night departure to provide an even more relaxing acclimation profile.
More details will come during the summer.
