Saturday, 9/11/2021, Årestua Hut: Season Preparation, 11,000’

CMC members: come visit the memorable Årestua hut on Guinn mountain and (re)familiarize yourself with the place by helping with the annual season preparation.After a short hike, the primary activity is wood cutting, with some other various activities to prepare, repair, or improve the hut.(Although not required to attend, please let me know if you can bring a chainsaw or have chainsaw experience.)Meet adjacent to Mineshaft Mercantile Co in Rollinsville (located at 70 Main St., or N39.91722 W105.50203 on your gps) at 7:45am to carpool up to Yankee Doodle lake. I plan to arrange car pooling at the meet-up - please bring a high clearance vehicle, if you own. (I'm also expecting some will join at the hut too, by hiking in the longer trail access route or an overnight stay).Bring: work boots/shoes, work gloves, snacks/lunch, and DRINKING WATER. We typically arrive at the hut at 10:30 am and wrap at between 3-4pm to be back in Rollinsville 5-6 pm.Trip sign-up or RSVP is greatly appreciated!
