The next meeting of the Sauk-Calumet Sierra Club Group will be on Monday, February 12th, at the Frankfort Public Library, 21119 Pfeiffer Rd. in Frankfort at 7:15 pm.

The program will highlight a father-daughter team who backpacked the John Muir Trail in California this past summer.  Mel Tracy and his 17-year-old daughter Molly will share slides and tell tales of their joy-filled 250-mile backpack trip hiking north on California’s John Muir Trail from 30 miles south of Mt. Whitney to Yosemite Valley.   Their 3 week experience included snow, then floodwaters, and finally fire danger.

All meetings are open to members and the general public.  For more info or for questions about the Club and its activities email Patrick Coffey at [email protected].
