Training for Mt. Langley

Well, it's been a while since I wrote anything about the Wolfpack Adventure Team but we do have a new adventure on the horizon.  On Labor Day this year we plan to be on the summit of Mt. Langley (14,049').

A few new members have joined the pack and we are beginning some of our training hikes in the local mountains.  James Brockway and Casey Ryan plan to join Jack Souders and myself as we work up to some higher elevation hiking.  Last year, my training on peaks like Baden-Powell (9,400') and San Gorgonio (11,500') really helped me to make the summit of Mt. Whitney (14,502') in September.

Our first test will be this coming weekend on Mt. Islip (8,250').
