Meet at 6:30 am at Exit 212 off I-5 Park & Ride for carpools or 8:00 am at the Big Four Picnic Area on Mountain Loop Hwy. 92. The beautiful Big Four area lies along the south fork of the Stillaguamish River east of Granite Falls. Plan to hike around 2 miles and bring a lunch. We’ll do a combo field trip with history, birds and plants. The birding is exceptional in June. The picnic area has spectacular views of Big Four Mountain and Hall Peak. We will break up in the early afternoon. A NW Forest Pass is required. Leaders: Pam Pritzl 360.387.7024 and Jeff Osmundson, 360.435.4297 or email@example.com.
