»Ride the New Mockingbird Bridge on the Katy TrailRide the New Mockingbird Bridge on the Katy TrailMeet at the Mockingbird Dart Station Park and Ride.  The ride begins at 8:30 AM. We’ll bike to White Rock Lake via the Ridgewood Trail, then head south along the lake to the Santa Fe Trail. Riding the SF Trail, we’ll emerge in Deep Ellum, where it’ll be time for a caffeine break (Café Brazil?). Then we'll continue through Downtown Dallas (ultra-light traffic on weekends) to the Katy Trail and ride the Katy north to our starting point. The whole triangular trip is 18 miles. Plan on two hours plus the stop in Deep Ellum. Bring your own bicycle.  You must wear a helmet.  This is an opportunity to experience several popular urban bike trails. Only people who reply with an email address will be alerted to cancelation or other changes.

»Backpack in ColoradoBackpack in ColoradoThis year's July destination for mountain backpacking is the Uncompahgre Wilderness, southwest of Gunnison. The area's been called the "Switzerland of America." We'll hike a loop using trails by the East Fork and Middle Fork of the Cimarron River. One party will hike 18 miles in four days, including a 12,600' saddle separating the two drainage basins. Two other parties will hike the same trails plus a day hike to 14,301' Uncompahgre Peak, 29 miles in five days. This outing is strenuous due to the high altitude. Participants should have a previous multi-day backpacking experience. The outing is at capacity and closed to additional participants who have not spoken with the coordinator.
