KHC Newsletter – June 18, 2017

KHC News

  • Thanks to all KHC members and guests who hiked to the top of Mara Mountain for our Canada 150 event.
  • Special recognition goes to Gerry Hoye who did the overall organization of the event.
  • In support, KHC also appreciates the efforts of Michelle Dressler, Greg Arvidson, Lois and Ed Hunter, Sheila and Firth Powell, Doug Smith, John Moslin, Sam Chow, Ernie Carson, and the Kamloops Outdoor Club for getting 67 hikers to the top.
  • We have a KHC member who is blind and wants to join in on some moderate KHC events.   She has a seeing-eye dog but a hiker-guide is also a good idea.   If you are interested in helping out, contact a KHC Director or hike leader.
  • Final deadline for KHC merchandise is June 30 so order online if you are interested.

Alpine Hikes

All of the alpine areas of the Interior are going to be later to clear of snow so hike leaders are hesitant to post events or to enable proposed events for registration.   We also have to wait for word that the roads are driveable (ie Trophy Mountain, Eagle Pass Mountain, and others).   For hike leaders it is a good idea to have a “Plan B” for posted events and to network with others about both road and trail conditions.   Some areas of the province will not clear until August, reducing down this year’s alpine hiking season.

Doug Smith

Retired now, I get into the outdoors most days to hike, paddle, camp, snowshoe, or explore. Some of my activities involve more difficult routes, but most are suitable for moderately fit people too. Since I am out several times a week, I post one (or two) event(s) each week and I invite a small group of like-minded people to join me. Kamloops Trails
