Women Who Explore: Washington New Year’s Day Hike
January 1, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
WWE members and their families are invited to join us on a New Year’s Day hike to Wallace Falls State Park*
The hike is 5.6 mile roundtrip hike with 1300 ft gain. Please familiarize yourself with the hike by reading about it here: https://www.wta.org/go-hiking/hikes/wallace-falls
We will be using WTA’s trailhead location for a meetup spot. If there’s any confusion about how to get there, please communicate with our ambassador about location and directions before the morning of the hike, as she may not be able to help you if she herself is driving or at the trailhead with bad cell phone reception. The group will wait for 15 minutes past trailhead meetup time for late arrivals.
As always, we encourage all hikers to pack the 10 essentials for outdoor survival, which can be found here: https://www.rei.com/learn/expert-advice/ten-essentials.html
Friendly reminder: If you haven’t yet signed the e-waiver before attending your first event, please locate the pinned post at the top of this group and sign it.
**Important info: Ambassadors are not wilderness first aid certified. This is a casual get together for shared outdoor enthusiasts. Safety is a top priority; please plan accordingly.**
ALSO, as part of Women Who Explore Giveback Campaign, our local chapter has opted to support Seattle-based Jubilee Women’s Center (https://www.jwcenter.org/). Jubilee helps women experiencing poverty and, so, we’re asking those who participate in this hike to please donate one of the items listed below:
New bed pillows (standard twin size)
Laundry detergent for HE washers
USB sticks/flash drives
Grocery and drug store gift cards
Fresh fruits and vegetables
ORCA cards in any amount
Tickets/passes for movies, plays, concerts and sporting events
Deodorant (full size)
Q-tips (full size packages)
You can also find Jubilee’s wish list items at Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3GN7MSV6MR7KS/ref=hz_ls_biz_ex) and have them shipped directly to Jubilee.
*Hike location has been changed due to avalanche danger.
