Join Rabbi Korngold for a day of rigorous hiking through awe inspiring wildflowers complemented by contemplative conversation.

We will hike, learn, and hike some more. (Mostly hike though!)

HIKE #1
Wednesday, June 19, 2013
: Join Rabbi Jamie for a hike along the Mesa trail. We will drop a vehicle at NCAR and then drive over to the Eldorado trailhead and hike back. The hike has lots of gradual up and downs, but nothing extreme so we will be able to move at a fairly good clip. This hike is designed for people who are in shape and enjoy long stretches outside.

HIKE #2
Wednesday July 17, 2013:
Join Rabbi Jamie and Jeanette Domber for this high alpine adventure!
For our second hard core hike this season, we will head to Chasm Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park, with beautiful views of the Long's Peak Diamond Face. This will be an 8.4 mile hike round trip with an elevation gain of 2,360 feet. A lot of this trail is above tree line, so we will get an early start to avoid the chance of afternoon thunderstorms. We will meet at 6:15 am sharp to carpool to the trailhead. You must be in Colorado shape to do this hike. Plan on being out all day and pack accordingly (hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, rain gear, a warmer layer just in case it's cool as we climb up to 11,760 ft, plenty of water, and food, etc.) We will return to the car pool location by 5 pm at the latest. Please RSVP for car pool location and just in case we make any last minute trail changes due to weather considerations.

Suggested equipment: Plenty of water, lunch & snacks, sunscreen, rain gear, warm layers (check the forecast), comfortable hiking boots.

Fee: free for members, all others $22 per hike or (Late fee of + $5/hike, begins 7 days before before the hike)

HIKE #3
Sunday, Aug 11, 2013
: Join Jeanette Domber and Rabbi Jamie for another fabulous wilderness adventure.

Join us for our last hard core hike of the season, an 8-9 mile round trip hike to Pawnee Pass in the Brainard Lake Recreation area. We'll climb about 2000' feet from the trailhead to the pass as we pass alpine lakes and meadows, with plenty of wildflowers, and a few creek crossings.

We will get an early start to avoid the chance of afternoon thunderstorms by meeting at 6:00 am sharp in Boulder to carpool to the trailhead. (If you are willing to drive, please come with a full tank of gas.)

You must be in Colorado shape to do this hike. Plan on being out all day and pack accordingly (hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, rain gear, a warmer layer just in case it's cool as we climb up to 12,550 ft, plenty of water, and food, etc.). We will return to the car pool location by 5 pm at the latest (but usually earlier). Please RSVP for car pool location and just in case we make any last minute trail changes due to weather

What: 8-9 miles at altitude with 2000 feet elevation gain.

Who Should Sign Up?
To come on this trip you must be in strong physical condition and able to hike at a sustained pace on an adventure which will last up to 8 hours. (If you are in "Boulder" shape, you'll be fine. This won't be as hard as a peak climb. But, for people that don't get out much, it would be hard. Call us if that doesn't make sense!)
You must be willing to work with a group. We are unable to accommodate dogs or children under 16.

Please do not show up at the trail head without advanced registration.
Participants must speak to Jeanette
or have been on hikes with us before to be eligible for this trip.
