    I’m looking to put together a day trip on Saturday November 25th. Last year we did Lonesome Lake on Black Friday – I’m happy to do that again but I’m open to other suggestions. Not sure what the snow situation is, but I’m hoping we’ll find some.

    Here’s what I’m thinking until someone gives me a better idea:

    • 9:00 meet at Enumclaw Safeway
    • Air down at the fire station near FS 74/75
    • Run up FS75 to Lonesome lake
    • Head out to the lookout for a lunch stop and (hopefully) awesome view of Mount Rainier
    • Head back to pavement on FS 73
    • If there’s time/interest, take a side trip up to Suntop Lookout

    I’ll be bringing my boy and dog and we’ll want to spend some time romping around outside the vehicle.

    This is not a challenging route unless there’s snow. If there isn’t snow, we can explore some side roads looking for trouble.

    Let me know if you’re interested in joining me.

    Aaron – sounds good. Did you have something different in mind for route or timing?

    My plan only included checking conditions at Haller which is on the way to the view point if we’re thinking of the same place. So your route sounds good to me. I hadn’t planned a time yet so I’m flexible there.

    Should have 2 additional vehicles with me.

    Um, I am unable to make Saturday but Friday could be planned?

    Benjamin and I were planning on scouting conditions for the following weekend’s tree run. Looking like Friday I guess.

    Looks like I’ll have to catch you on another trip, Dan.

    I am interested in this trip as long as I can work out a few bugs this week.

    Ok, I’m trying to figure out who is going when and who will put up with me on the trip. Ira Seierstad may come along as well, depending on what day.

    I do want to check out NFS 120 and NFS 7510 on the way to Haller. With the weather, the viewpoint past the Lonesome Lake turn, should be reachable and the Huckleberry Ridge loop doable as well. The day I go, I plan on a full day away but not sleeping out there.

    So, who is going, when.
