November 10 – Caving Trip to Lava Beds National Monument
October 17 – Day Hike up Mt. Eddy
Mount Eddy has the distinction of being the highest mountain in the continental United States west of I-5. On a clear day, the peak offers commanding views up and down the coast range and across the Siskiyous of Northern California and Southern Oregon. Mount Eddy's majestic neighbor, Mount Shasta, stands tall across the valley to the east. The spectacular scenery one can take in from the top of Mount Eddy makes the climb a very worthwhile and satisfying one. The hike is only moderately strenuous, covering 4.5 miles one way while rising 2600 vertical feet from trailhead to summit.
September 11-13 – Kayaks on the Rogue
Highlights include 2 nights of camping with a day in between spent floating the Rogue River in inflatable kayaks. The stretch of river near the small town of Galice is a fun one--a great stretch even if you are not an experienced boater (but with just enough wave action to keep you on your toes!). The rugged scenery of the Rogue River canyon is spectacular, and there are great opportunities to view bird and animal life along the banks. Right now, the weather in September is forecast to be sunny and warm. So, it sounds like an ideal way to say one last goodbye to summer as we ease into a new school year.
