My plan is to meet at the Walmart parking lot in the Northgate Shopping Center on State Street at 1 PM on Thursday, July 23. More specifically, we will meet in front of the Washington Trust Bank. From there, we will drive north to Cascade, then east to Warm Lake. From Warm Lake, we will continue further east to the trailhead, where we will camp for the evening. Friday morning, we will head out for Big Baldy. Big Baldy will be a long hike of about 30 miles and 8,000' of total elevation gain. Virtually the entire hike will be on a trail. My plan is to camp near Buck Lake on Friday night, which is about 12 miles from the trailhead. Saturday we will hike to the top and return to Buck Lake. After packing up, we will start hiking back to the trailhead. We may end up camping a second night along the trail if we can't make it all the way back to the trailhead by Saturday night. We need a minimum of four people along for safety reasons. Two links for Big Baldy are below. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 575-437-6303 if you want to come.
