Leading a hike is the easy part. Answering all the emails for weeks before, keeping track of the cancelations and additions, figuring out car-pooling, waivers forms, etc… are the hard things lol.
Fifteen hikers came out to the Mt Prevost Hike on March 23. We had 8 members and quite a few potential members. For me it is always a delight to lead, I enjoy meeting new people, and share our mountains with new people.
Mt Prevost has many trails and I made use of many of them that gave the group many wonderful viewpoints. For some going up the rope section was a challenge, but I knew it was better to do it going up than down.
We saw lots of evidence of elk, but did not see any. The hike was 5 hours and we had some beautiful sunshine. New friendships were made, and it seemed no one was in a hurry to leave.
