Cascade Lakes HWY is now open and the access to the Cascades hasn't been this easy all winter. John Righeimer is doing another trip to South Sister, this time driving the van to Devil's Lake and hiking up to Sandy Plain for a restful sleep on Saturday night. The next morning, very early, the group will aim for the summit of South Sister. Participants should have backcountry camping and mountaineering experience. If you are considering this trip but the times or dates don't work for you, sign up anyways and get in contact with John. Get outside this weekend and enjoy the mountain air!
