Backpacking to Upper Cataract Lake UPDATE!!

Leaving Saturday morning, Sep 10th, works for more people that leaving Friday night, soooo, that’s what we’ll do.  We’re getting a good list going with both boys and parents.  IF you are interested in a little backpacking up to an alpine lake and can go up with us, let me know by Sunday.  

A little more info.  (See orig email for more).  More info and packing list to follow…..  

 NEW – MEET AT LINCOLN PARK AND RIDE AT 6:00 FOR A 6:15 SHARP DEPARTURE.  Breakfast at MacD’s is optional.  Healthy Breakfast is recommend.    
It’s about a 2 1/2 hours drive up to the head trail of Upper Cataract Lake.  Silverthorne exit, down Hwy 9.  Next exit to the trail head is by Green Mountain Reservoir.    

About a 6 mile hike, 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 hours depending on if we stop at Surprise Lake and have lunch.  It’s not going to be a race 

Like getting ready for the 14er hike, start during water and eating bananas now. 

Be at the next Troop meeting 1/2 hour early.  Boys in PLC, we’ll need to work something out..
