Twins / Garfield / Galehead Xverse (AA3B)

Hiking/Backpacking Date: Sat March 7, 2015

Headlamp start at North Twin trailhead Sat AM. Ascend North Twin along the beautiful Little River. Unique view of Garfield, Galehead, Owl's Head, and the Franconias from the top of NTwin. Quick jaunt over to South Twin--8th tallest 4K in the Whites--where the rest of the interior of the Pemi opens up. Death defying descent to Galehead hut, let's hope it isn't icy. Quick side trip to Galehead Mt, our 3rd 4K. Tough traverse along the Garfield Ridge to Garfield--if there is fresh snow, there is a high probability that we'll need to break trail and route finding will be difficult due to the maximum snow pack. Exit via Mt Garfield Tr. Gale River Loop Rd will be closed, adding to the distance.

17 miles of hard hiking, 6K feet of climbing, 4 NH 4Ks. Expect to average over 1.5MPH with winter load, minimal breaks for 10 hrs. You must be in excellent shape with significant winter experience.

Leaders will be staying at some reasonably priced area motel the night before and spotting cars. We'll organize a group staying at the motel if there's interest.

Day hike to Mount Moosilauke (B3B)

Hiking/Backpacking Date: Sun March 15, 2015

Mt. Moosilauke, with its alpine summit at over 4,800 feet, affords some of the most spectacular panoramic views in the White Mountains.

Everest Lodge to Lodge Trek in Nepal - Slideshow & Potluck

Hiking/Backpacking Date: Tue March 24, 2015

Join us for Keith Watling's slide show on the award winning Everest Lodge to Lodge Trek that he and his partner Judith Watson undertook with REI Adventures in Nepal during late September 2014.

After arriving in Kathmandu, Nepal's capital, and following a short unforgettable flight into the World's Most Dangerous Airport at Lukla, high in the Himalayas, the 9 day/ 50 mile trek combined simple and rustic accommodations with an immersion in the gentle and colorful Buddhist culture while providing spectacular views of Mount Everest and other legendary Himalayan peaks. In addition to visiting must-see sights, such as the magnificent Tengboche Monastery and the bustling village of Namche Bazaar, there was time enough to venture off the beaten path to visit more remote and secluded villages, including Khumjung, where Sir Edmund Hillary helped build the region's first school and Thame, birthplace of Norgay Tenzing who accompanied Sir Edmund on the historic first ascent of Mount Everest in 1953. Experience the awe-inspiring magnificence of the world's highest peaks and soak in the magic of Nepal and the Everest region in this breathtaking recount of a once in a lifetime adventure.

Potluck Info: Potluck Info: Participation in the potlucks is optional, yet useful for that post-office work hunger. Homemade dishes are welcome, store bought goodies & takeout are equally welcome. Plates, bowls, cups, cutlery, napkins and drink pitchers will be supplied. The auditorium has a kitchen if you need to do any re-warming or prep (stovetop, oven, microwave, sink & fridge). Please bring your own cooking pots if needed for stovetop.

All slideshows/potlucks take place at the AMC's Cabot Auditorium, 4 Joy Street, Boston MA.

Volunteering for the NPS: Natural Bridges National Monument, Utah - Potluck & Slideshow

Hiking/Backpacking Date: Wed April 15, 2015

Please join us for a fascinating evening as AMC member and National Park Service volunteer, Ron Janowitz, discusses his experience volunteering for the Natural Bridges National Monument in Southern Utah.

Ron spent last fall working at this spectacular park for three months, and will share breathtaking photography and fascinating stories from his experience behind the scenes. Topics include how to get "hired" as a volunteer, as well as the duties and living arrangements of volunteers, the history, geology and archeology of this remote and unique area.

Natural Bridges is remote and famous for its three massive bridges at the bottoms of steep canyons and remote Ancestral Puebloan ruins, occupied between 2000 and 750 years ago. The park is off the grid, and relies on solar panels for electricity. There are more mule deer and jackrabbits than people in San Juan County.
