Tenas Lakes Stewardship Backpack - July 10, 2015 - 8:45 am - Sisters
This will be a 2 night out backpack into the Mt Washington Wilderness to complete a wilderness stewardship project. We will be joined by a wilderness ranger who will give us instructions. Our mission will be to rehab a wilderness lake camping area. You will have to bring your own backpacking gear, work gloves and food. This will be a fun outing with time for hiking, relaxing and socializing. We will also have the opportunity to learn and ask questions.
Cloudy weather did not stop us. The new signs are up and rehab work done. We cleaned campsites as well and packed out 7 pounds of trash. Thanks to everyone for coming out.
Restoration Plan: Armoring and naturalization of illegal campsites- Rehab work- trash- sign installation. This trip will require about 4 miles of hiking each way. Elevation gain round trip is approximately 600 feet. We will camp in the Tenas Lakes area for the weekend and head back to trail head on Sunday at 2pm. This project as you will see is really needed asap. Please keep in mind that the work is somewhat strenuous.
