Celebrate "National Summit Day" with Young Members and start your August off right with a scenic car camping/hiking weekend in the Whites. The group will meet up Friday evening at a campground in New Hampshire, giving us the chance to get on the trail early the next day. On Saturday we will climb Mt Monroe (5372 ft; NH48) and Mt Washington (6288 ft; NH48) during a loop hike of 10 miles and 4000 ft elevation gain. Saturday night we will return to the campsite for campfire, dinner, and relaxing. Sunday we will offer an easier hike (1-3 miles) with an option to go swimming. Cost for the trip is $20 for members, $25 for non-members, which includes Saturday dinner, and two breakfasts, snacks, campground fees and firewood. Participants should bring lunches for both days. This hike is limited to 8 participants. (Note that our campsite is shared with two other YM groups, and we will share food but split up for hikes).
