Sat, Sep 19: Azure Mountain Bushwhack and Summit Rock Work We will bushwhack and scramble up the south side of the mountain along interesting cliffs and boulders and enjoy the views as we climb.

A two mile hike as a relaxed pace with a bit a rock hauling, bringing along a canvas bag as they work best for carrying the rocks.
