July 29-31st Elk Summit Camp Out.  This is a camping trip to the Elk Summit area south of Hwy 12 in the Lochsa Cr. area. Elk summit is on the divide between the Lochsa and Selway Rivers, and the trail head for numerous long trails down into the wilderness areas. The plan is to spend 2 nights at the campground, that is roughly 23 miles down a dirt road after you leave Hwy. 12. Fri. July 29th go in, Sat. July 30st climb something -probably Diablo Mt. which has a lookout- and out on Sun. July 31st.  Leader:  Julie Kahl  This email address is being protected from spambots.

Following is a series of trips proposed by Tim Bombaci.   “Now is the time to express your intention to participate so real  planning and personal communication can happen.  As usual, I ask that participants be reasonably competent, safe,  self-contained and self-reliant.”  [I have looked into Tim’s qualifications to lead these trips, and he is very qualified.  Alden Wright]

July 9, 10, 11 – MTB among ghost towns in Beaverhead County.  Meet in Melrose and head into the hills Eastward. A combination of car camping and possibly bike packing - negotiable. Possibly head to the Polaris side for additional locales - negotiable.  Leader:  Tim Bombaci  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

July 12 – Travel to City of Rocks

July 13, 14, 15 – Climb at COR.

Meet at the Bath Rock parking lot in the Park on the evening of the 12th or morning of the 13th. Make our plan accordingly. Mountain biking is available.

July 16, 17 – Travel to put in along Big Hole river.  Put in likely at Sportsman’s Park where there is camping. If everyone puts in at the same spot, each person can have a choice of where to take out. This could be a 1, 2, 3, or 4 day float. We will need to coordinate  rigs so everyone gets a ride from each take out. I hope to do 4 days.  Leader:  Tim Bombaci  This email address is being protected from spambots.

July 18, 19, 20, 21 – Float Big Hole river. Overall not many bumps =  relaxation and fishing. Farthest possible take out at Notch Bottom.  Leader:  Tim Bombaci  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Tim asks that you please advise at your earliest convenience so I can plan accordingly.
