We still need committed leaders and sweeps! If you are willing to lead or sweep, please let me know. Trips will be organized each morning.
Group potluck dinner Saturday evening (7-ish). Bring something fantastic that everyone will talk about - not just chips and salsa! Remember to include a serving utensil. For the convenience of cooking we ask that all pets be leashed beginning around 5:30pm while people are preparing food through the conclusion of dinner. Our four-legged friends can be very curious about what is for dinner and might be interfering with the preparation. Thanks for understanding. Everyone should bring their own mess kit (plate/utensils). At the conclusion of dinner, please remove your dish from the group table.
Browns Creek Trailhead BLM Area.
From the Junction of Highways 24 and 285 (Johnson’s Village) take 285 south about 8 miles to County Road 270 and turn right or west (there are two sets of pipes that go over the highway, if you reach the second set, you have gone too far). Follow the road as it changes from paved to dirt. You will have to look for a left fork in the road (I believe 272), there will be a sign for Brown’s Creek Trailhead. Follow the road until you hit the trailhead w/bathrooms. Keep going down this road until you see kayaks on cars.
There will portable toilet facilities available but you'll need to bring water and firewood and everything else. Be prepare for any kind of weather.
Hope you can join us for a wonderful weekend on the Ark!
