We are meeting with the good people at UCS next month. After that, we will write more about our plans and actions. In the meantime, please visit the UCSUSA website to learn more about who they are and what they do, and DONATE...because it certainly looks like science and the procurement of real knowledge will be more and more dependent on public, and not governmental, support over the next four years.***
Ski Trails, about 6 miles roundtrip with around 2000 feet of elevation gain.
Midterms and karate practice (we have an international competition coming up) ate most of our time last week -- as a consequence, Sunday's hike had to be short and quick. We chose Wildcat D via the ski trails. It's a nice, fast hike -- you buy a hiker's pass when the ticket counter opens at 8:30 and stay all the way to the left hiking up (and to the right hiking down). We were up and down in three hours.
Here are the photos of our hike. There is usually a nice view at the summit, but the morning was cloudy and we couldn't see the Presidentials.

I'll be back next week with a (more verbose) trip report of our next hike (midterms will be over).
