We joined the Sierra Club for some navigation practice this weekend. Our class started at the La Canada Carpool point. We loaded our cars up and headed to Eaton Saddle in the Angeles National Forest. The started the hike here and we made our way to Mt. Lowe. There was one instructor per 2-3 students. No map and compass experience was needed to take the class. We were divided into groups based on experience. Then the instructors had us do various exercises to work on our map and compass nav skills.
The class was extremely valuable and was a great way to refresh our skills. Next up our nav check off!
TRAIL SHOUT OUT: We want to give a shout out to new friends. The amazing instructors who volunteer their time to teach others-Diane, Richard and Robert in particular, Cheri our carpool mate and Jeff my navigating partner in crime.[gallery type="slideshow" ids="641,642,643,644,645,646,647,648,649,650,651,652,653"]
