Trip to Tecopa Hot Springs/Death Valley
Date: 05/25/2019 Region: California/Hawaii Activity Type: Swim/Sunbathe Place: Garden Grove, CA
I'm posting this to see what interest there is before posting as an actual trip... Which is something I want to do no sooner than 30 days ahead, as guys don't see it close to time to go and forget about it.
This is for
This is a great trip and I wish I was available. I will be in Spain over the Memorial Day weekend on a bicycling vacation. However, I will my eyes opened for the next time. Thank you for the suggestion, as it is a "great one." Rene
I like this idea, but think a different weekend could also be considered. Memorial Day weekend can often be difficult as people have plans in place already, often with their family. Also, I’ve been to hot springs that can be very busy (so busy not everyone can be in the water when they choose to). Although I don’t know these hot springs, I would imagine this could be the case for Memorial Day weekend.

Thinking about renting some cabins in Bear Creek State Park the last weekend of March. Cabins sleep 6 comfortably. There are trails, a lake for kayaking, lots of quiet privacy and peace & quiet. >>Read More and View "Who Likes It"
New news? I'm clear for the weekend.
Looks like fun. Goodbye winter, hello spring. Finally. If cabins at Bear Creek State Park are unavailable that weekend, the perhaps Douthat State Park could be a Plan B? Unfortunately, the clothing optional Jefferson Pools in nearby Warm Springs are closed until further notice.

I looked at online webcams, and called the Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce. No snow, or very little snow... :( This will have to wait. :(
Mo, problem is, down that way, there is no way of knowing when there will be snow. It was looking good, but I'm guessing this warm spell will melt a lot of snow down that way. I do want snow on the ground as well, because I want to see the area covered in snow. I've been to Baxter a few times in winter, but never Acadia. ... Plenty of snow up here.. Come on up. This warm spell will not melt all of it. I'll have to monitor conditions. The Bar Harbor Chamber should be able to give me info, s

Dear npd1164, glad you posted this as it's a beautiful hike, although not sure a spring hike is best idea since many trails are closed typically at that time of year due spring runoff and trail conditions. Looking further south, you might consider Mt. Ascutney as winter hike, perhaps on a warmer day if cold is a deterrent. I like the mountain and views, and would be interested in a winter hike there. Let's see what others have to say? Best, Fred

Thanks guys! JohnMaineIslandTrail, I'd like to hear more about pointers you could provide. I'll message you directly. Maybe we could get a group together and share expertise before setting out for a paddle. I had thought of a group class if there was sufficient interest, but I've not researched places or expenses. Does anyone else feel motivated to research that? Yours, Daniel
I'm quite interested if the date(s) works for me. I have my own crossover kayak w/skirt, can do Class II, but can't roll. . Has any thought been given to getting a group lesson or teaching trip from a reliable/certified instructor/outfitter. I think there are at least a couple on the northern MA-NH-ME coast, and there are some fresh water ones in northern NH.

For spring break a year ago last March, I did several of the trails in the Arbuckle Wildlife Management Area along Arbuckle Lake. I did it as a multi-night camping trip. But they can certainly be done individually as day hikes. All but one trail was very well managed; not wanting to do trailblazing and bushwhacking, I avoided that one section.

I would strongly suggest hiking red hill mountain in Moultonborough, NH. The view at the top is quite nice, one of Lake Winnipesaukee. There is also an outlook tower at the top you can climb up, if you want to. It think the total hike is maybe an hour up, perhaps a little over 1000 foot vertical gain? Now there are two ways you can go. At a certain fork in the road, you can bear right and take the snowmobile trail up, which is a grassy walk. At some point the snowmobile trail goes straight a

til closing, Memorial Day. Squaw or Mammoth. Ski or Ride.
Didn't really get much interest last year either. Doesn't seem to be much activity in northern California in general as well. I've got my theories .... Squaw has more than enough snow on the upper mountain to conduct operations thru Memorial Weekend. BTW, I both ski & ride. Alpine & Squaw are my home mountains where I teach. Mammoth is open til Memorial weekend, too so I'm also open to that option.
