Though only 3 members attended, we had a fun, challenging and rewarding time. Total trek was 1,954 ft elevation gain in 7.8 miles wit 2 ft of snow That required postholing the last .9 miles. Thankfully, we were joined with other hiking groups and collectively trail blazed our way to first lake. Amazing views along the way and as always even better company, dogs and other hikers along the way. A definite workout well worth it. Will feel the burn.

Twelve OutVentures members and one happy dog set out under summer skies to explore the Indian Creek watershed in the Teanaway Community Forest. Lush, green and expansive meadows greeted us as we hiked along babbling Indian Creek. Wildflowers carpeted the valley, Aspen and Cottonwood trees swayed in the breeze and the smell of warming Ponderosa Pine bark wafted in the air. We were able to witness the environmental restoration work that has occurred in Indian Creek; efforts to restore the creek and watershed to pre-logging conditions and health. Leaving the valley floor we climbed along an old abandoned logging road (spooking a heard of cows along the way) and then set off cross-country following a game trail. Cresting the ridge, we came to a viewpoint which afforded a beautiful vista of the Teanaway Crest, Mt. Stuart and the entirety of the Indian Creek watershed. This outlook gave us a broad view of the Teanaway Community Forest, giving us a sense of just how big 50,000 acres of land really is! As we hiked back down to the valley and through the meadows, I think we all came to the realization that this Community Forest is special and unique. It now belongs to all the people of Washington State and we look forward to further explorations - stayed tuned for the next OutVentures hike into this gorgeous landscape! Craig Mabie

Several members explored several miles of tide flats and beach during Sunday's low tide of minus 3.2 feet. We met at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park in Shoreline and head south along the beach, toward Carkeek Park in Seattle. Just short of Carkeek the tide began to turn so we stopped, ate lunch and made the return trip to Richmond Beach.

Millie served as Captain of a crew of sailors with a 30 foot with 2 sails. 8 OutVentures members in total for a 5-6 hour cruise in pure sun and good winds. Millie taught us sailing terms, and told us great tales along the way. First Mate Doug E. helped her steer the vessel all the way past Kingston and back to Shilshole Marina. 2 NEW OV folks, Victoria, and Collin were part of the crew. I think Millie provided a great OV adventure. All she requests is you obey her orders! She smiled the entire trip because we obey the Captain. Here are a few of my photos. Other folks like Rose and Collin were taking photos too. The weather was all sun, and steady winds, so we just enjoyed the trip and shared stories the entire trip. Millie, Doug, Tim, Kelly, Collin, Cory, Victoria, and Rose make 8. On an 30 foot sailboat.... Eight is Enough! Thanks a million Millie.

Wow what a great trip..thanks for organizing it, Tom! The first hike was to Girabaldi Lake, a huge, glacier tinted lake fed by the snows of Mt. Girabaldi, the northernmost Cascade volcano. The next day, we hiked up a tough trail with 4000' gain to Wedgemount Lake, located in a spectacular cirque below 9400' Wedge Mountain. I'm sure there will be many more pictures posted soon!
