Dallas Sierra Club Meeting IconAug 21 (Wed) No August Outings Committee Meeting

It's still summer. With plans for great outings in place for late August, October and February, we'll wait for September to convene an Outings Committee meeting. Enjoy the summer heat in Texas. Better still, enjoy the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of the high Pecos Wilderness this Labor Day weekend with the Dallas Sierra Club!  Contact: Mark Stein Send Email 214-526-3733

Bus Trip IconAug 29-Sep 3 (Thu-Tue) Pecos Wilderness Bus Trip

(replace this text with a short description of the image)All 27 places on the Pecos bus trip have filled, but there may be space on a short waitlist. Your odds for a space on the bus are currently good. Contact Steve to inquire. This is one of the Dallas Sierra Club's favorite backpacking destinations. The Pecos Wilderness is high in New Mexico’s Sangre de Cristo Mountains, between Las Vegas, Santa Fe and Taos. Conifer and aspen forests and mountain meadows cover the land below the alpine tundra you'll discover above tree line. Elk, mountain sheep, black bears and marmots forage at high elevations. 

We have four great hikes that should satisfy any of your late summer backpacking cravings. For complete details, including information on the hikes offered, trip cost and how to register, download this PDF document.  Coordinator: Steve Fleischman Send Email 972-689-7317

This hike is dog friendly as long as your pooch is on a leash and is friendly. We'll walk around a pretty lake, a small stand of cottonwood trees, ID local plants as we go, and also learn about the "trashy" origin of Breckenridge Park. The hike is mainly out in the open so a hat and sunscreen are advised. Bring a litter of water. We start walking at 8:00 am and we will be back to the cars by noon. Limit 10 people. Optional lunch afterwards.  Trip rated: Easy. Leader: Jim Binnings Send Email 205-746-3266
