Fool me once, shame on you! Fool me twice, shame on Mark! Yes too late for April Fool's day but I remain the club's fool. Join "MTTM" on a "probe" of the Juniper Mesa Wilderness. After enjoying the rock formations on 89 North and churning up around 20 miles of dust, we will start off on the Juniper Springs Trail and then as much of the Juniper Mesa as we can take. There is so much mica, quartz and "Fools Gold" on first part of this trail that it literally glitters! This will be an exposed hike, so be prepared for sunshine. We will turn around at around 2.5 or 3 hours, depending on the group. Bring a minimum of 3 liters of water, lunch, and tales of Tom (or Jane) Foolery.

Contact the leader by Friday night before the hike so that I won't be "The Fool on the Hill!" Cost to non-member is $5.
