NCIWC Backpacking June 27- July 5, 2015
It’s time to start thinking about the up-coming backpacking trip into Emigrant Wilderness.
This trip is for anyone who has backpacked before, or would like to try a nine day backpacking trip with our best loved Irish Wolfhounds.
Emigrant Wilderness is about the best the high Sierra’s can offer. The trails are in good shape, the elevation changes on our route are modest, and the scenery is the best.
We will be passing dozens of streams, and many lakes. The wild flowers are almost in full bloom, and the weather is mild.
The Club provides the kitchen, and cooking. Also the club provides information on equipment (help you with equipment choices) and abilities (make sure you and your hound will have a good time), guiding, and wilderness permit.
The participants share the cost of food (about $100 per person), and provide there own equipment and transportation to the staging area.
If you are interested drop me a note, and I will happily answer any questions, and I will send the information packet to you. The closing date for signing up for the trip is June 8, 2015 (this gives me plenty of time to prepare the food)
We keep going back to Emigrant Wilderness each year because it is just fantastic!
I hope to see you on the trail.
