Gclub trip report. Beavers Bend Memorial weekend trip. Beavers Bend May2002
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.

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

wonderful climbs, great vistas.
