Host: A.J. McGranaghan
This is a run we have not seen on the calendar for a few years but the last time it occurred, it was very popular.
Plan to be at the Starbucks in Lakewood at the intersection of 512 and S. Tacoma Way at 9 a.m. for a driver's meeting. Then we'll depart on our scenic adventure to the top of Mt. Ranier.
This drive will take us back onto Hwy 512 to Hwy 410 (the Mt. Rainier Highway) through Enumclaw and Buckley before the turn up to Crystal Mountain Ski Resort.
Once there, those who wish to ride the gondola to the top of the mountain will be rewarded with beautiful scenic views (assuming it's a clear day) and a chance to have lunch at the Summit Restaurant at the end of the gondola ride. Upon arrival at the ski area, those who are not interested in the gondola ride may bring a sack lunch and eat at the bottom of the mountain, or those who are not interested in eating at the Summit Restaurant may take their lunches to the summit and picnic there (there are tables there for picnickers).

Please RSVP so we can plan ahead.
