We had a group of 7 vehicles and 15 people from CMS and guests from the Marysville Club for this trip on July 14th. The weather was great. Clear blue skies, mid-70s, a breeze blowing in from the west. Gorgeous views over the Teanaway River Valley.
After meeting at the Mineral Springs Store, we drove 7 1/2 miles on gravel.
