July 29, 2015: Planning to celebrate the anniversaries at Mizpah (Aug. 14) and/or Lakes (Aug. 15) for the day or night? Some things we think you ought to know.

  • The auto road is closed Saturday, August 15 until 1:00 PM. (Bike Race).
  • There is no overnight parking at the Highland Center (unless you are spending the night there).. A Forest Service parking pass ($3/day, $5/week) which is available at local stores.
  • The AMC is not offering any special buses - getting from trailhead to trailhead is your responsibility. (Note: There should be many OH going from the Base Station to the Crawford Path Parking lot on Sunday).
  • All bunks (and other sleeping spaces) are taken at both huts - don't plan to spend the night if you don't already have a space. Camping around the huts is not allowed.
  • You must provide your own lunches - but complimentary soup, bread and a (birthday) cake will be served at Lakes around noon on Saturday, August 15 for those who want to celebrate during the day.
  • You must Bring Your Own Beverage for both Happy Hours.
  • A limited quantity of commemorative water bottles, celebrating both hut anniversaries, will be sold at Lakes on Saturday, August 15th. Cost is $10/bottle.
  • Finally bring your best hut story to share during the evening story hour.
