CMC Members, 


Three CMC outings to choose from this weekend!  


*	Winter backpacking in Bryce Canyon
*	Backcountry skiing in the Sierra
*	Rock climbing in Joshua Tree


Contact the trip leaders for more information about these outings.



February 20th - 23rd                   Wednesday - Saturday
Bryce Canyon Backpack 


Most people view Bryce Canyon from the overlooks alongside the road. Some
are daring enough to take a trail a short distance down into the canyon.
Very few ever backpack the whole length of it. Fewer still in winter.


I plan to do a multiday backpack of the entire length of Bryce Canyon. The
total distance is less than 25 miles but the weather and snow conditions
will determine how much of a challenge this is. I'm suggesting four days to
be on the safe side but it could take a little longer or we might finish a
little early. I've never done this before so I can't say for sure. All I can
say with some confidence is that Bryce in the snow should be gorgeous.

This trip is open to anyone who is interested in a (hopefully) moderate snow
camping experience. No special skills are required but anyone interested
should be prepared for the cold. I'm guessing highs around freezing and lows
around zero or less so be sure to pack a sweater.

February 23rd - 24th                             Saturday - Sunday
Eastern Sierra - Backcountry skiing 

Join me for some backcountry skiing/boarding in the Mammoth area. There many
options here within just a few miles of driving: various lines up Mammoth
Crest, the Convict Lake area, Solitude Canyon and McGee Creek just to name a
few. The actual itinerary will depend on snow/weather conditions as well as
group experience level and consensus.  


In addition to winter backcountry travel essentials, necessary gear includes
avalanche beacon, backcountry skis/split boards and ski or mountaineering

February 23th - 24th                          Saturday - Sunday
Joshua Tree


Join me for two days of rock climbing in Joshua Tree National Park - I've
reserved two family campsites for Saturday night in Black Rock Campground
(only spots available and the max I could reserve).  Each site has space for
6 people and 2 vehicles.  Friends and family are welcome, but MUST be
accompanied by a CMC member.  We'll have a campfire on Saturday night, with
an option to eat dinner at Las Palmas Mexican Restaurant (Yucca Valley)
Saturday night.  Parking will be limited on this trip, so carpooling is a
must.  Email John for additional information at:
