For Boomer members. This is a repeat of last year's first major hike. Approximately 1 hour travel time via car pool from South Parking Lot at Senior Center with prompt departure at 8 am. Day pack with snacks and water (at least 1 liter, 2 preferred). The hike is 4 mile round trip (2 down, 2 up) rated strenuous (up from moderately strenuous last year by Park Service). Plan on 1 hour down, 2 hours back up (maybe a bit more for some).
For Boomer members only. Join local naturalist Arden Anderson for a relaxed morning of hiking and looking for birds at several spots through the valley. The hiking will be easy on relatively level ground and may cover a total of 2 miles or so. The birds get up early so we will meet at the Recreation Center parking lot near the Boomer’s Room at 7:20 am . From there we will consolidate into a couple of vehicles and drive to several sites to hike and bird. Bring binoculars and a bird book if you have them, along with water, a snack and clothing appropriate for the weather. It would also be nice to bring a couple of bucks to help share the cost of gas for the drivers. We should get back to Gunnison by 11:30 and if you would like to join us we will head over to the Palisades Restaurant for lunch.
Each hike will be limited to 10 participants so get your RSVP in. This is the first of three bird hikes two more coming up May 3rd and 10th.
