Hello Hoos! I’ve had a busy couple weeks, and am about ready to FINALLY get outside. What do I have in mind? Two hikes, the Doyles River Falls Trail, and the Dark Hollow and Rose River Falls. These trails are united by a common theme-waterfalls(Though the water level may be low). We will hit up Doyles, then drive a little further along Skyline to hit Dark Hollow. In total, this is a 8.9 mile hike, so be prepared for that length.

Note: Saturday calls for showers in the late afternoon. Ideally we will mostly outpace them, and at worst, get caught in a light drizzle. I’m going to keep checking the weather report, and if it worsens, I may have to shorten/cancel the trip. So keep your fingers crossed Zeus smiles down upon us mere mortals, trying to punk around Gaia’s nostrils.

I admit, I may lack some of the uplifting humor of many of my outdoors club brethren, but I make up for it in a chill vibe, love of good music, and some antics. Also, I can give you dramatic savings ;-). I have a National Parks America is Beautiful Pass(#MilitaryBrat), so YOU don’t have to pay anything to get inside, and I also have a relatively high-capacity vehicle(#Mom-mobile)

I remember what it was like to be vehicleless last year, really wanting to get out to the mountains but unable to do so, so I will try to show priority to new members who sign up.
