May 2002    Beavers Bend Gclub trip report. Beavers Bend Memorial weekend trip. Beavers Bend May2002 photo's
We had 11 friends join us on this trip. James-VP of Base camp operations got a solid challenge from "Dave" the Quiet one on this trip. Dave arrived early to find us homeless and without camping location due to the popularity of the park during holidays. Fortunately, Cell phones, imagination and a little luck found us all nested in at Carson Creek by nights end. We ended up with a great camp site considering the overflow crowds.

Mineral Wells State Park Rock Climbing. We climb outdoors mostly Spring and Summer.
Rating: EASY! Bring
Picnic lunch have a great time.
We head to Mineral Wells State park for Rock climbing, easy days of picnics, laughing, joking and cheering brave souls onto the rocks. It's a lot of fun, NO ONE is every pressured, join us when we go, if you decide to climb Michael Railey will provide gear and safety instructions. Once you decide hey, this is fun, then come back, enjoy the days, and occasionally offer to assist with set up early mornings.
Look for Enchanted rock and Wichita Wildlife Refuge climbs this fall. They require planning, weekend camping however, wonderful climbs, great vistas.
Mineral Wells State park, many photos from trips.
