Emmons Trip

Don't forget about the trip to the Emmons tomorrow Sunday the 1st of October. Its a free trip. We'll meet at the beginning of Patch Mountain Road by 8:30. We'll leave at 8:30 and start driving to the quarry. The road going up to the Emmons was quite smooth earlier this year so no one should have any troubles getting up there.
