Thank you for a wonderful weekend… »

April 12th, 2016


Hi Chris,

After receiving the Newsletter I was reminded that we did not write to say a huge thank you to everyone who made our weekend truly wonderful! We knew it would be great but we did not realize that we would miss it. Even though our past weekend was full of activity and sun it was just not the same as our weekend at High Camp. We are certain we will be back next year.

Hiking with Kids »

View of the High Meadows from High Country Trail

During July, August and through September 29 the lodging for kids at Scottish Lakes High Camp is FREE! This is a great opportunity for families to get into the back country to hike. There are wonderful routes out of High Camp for any level of hiking. Families always want to know what trails are best for hiking with their kids. Three shorter hikes come to mind, although there are of course many more if your family has more hiking experience and can go a little longer.

Long-Toed Salamander »

Long-toed Salamander

Look what we found in the snow at mid mountain! For those of us who have very little knowledge of amphibians this was so surprising. This  is a mole salamander in the family Ambystomatidae. This species, typically 4.1–8.9 cm (1.6 to 3.5 in) long when mature, is characterized by its mottled black, brown, and yellow pigmentation, and its long outer fourth toe on the hind limbs, hence the name.

High Meadows late April snowshoe

In the past we have always been open to the end of April. Our final weekend usually was celebrated with a ski to the High Meadows. Of course even this year there will be snow in these high elevations at the end of April and also clear into late June. The difference is the melt out at lower elevations.
