On Tuesday mornings, BWAGs meet by the horse sculpture in the parking lot of Museum of the Rockies, 600 W. Kagy Blvd. There are three hiking or skiing groups and one biking group, and the destinations depend on preferences, weather, time constraints, etc. Groups carpool (or bike) to their destinations and enjoy beautiful Big Sky country, exercise, some natural history, and friendships. Drivers are reimbursed for gas and car wear & tear based on the distance driven. (Informal rule of thumb: $4-6 for each total hour of driving.)
Summer: Wear hiking boots/biking garb and bring water, lunch, sunscreen, and clothes for inclement weather. (Weather in the mountains can be very unpredictable, and, difficult as it sometimes is to imagine, can become dangerously cold in a very short time.) We leave at 8:00 or 8:30 (unless a special meeting time has been arranged beforehand) and usually return between 3:00 and 6:00 in the afternoon.
Winter: Bring ski equipment, warm clothes (plus emergency clothing), lunch, water, sunscreen. We leave at 9:00 and usually return between 2:00 and 5:00 in the afternoon.
Dues are a "dime a time," or $5.00 per year.
Newcomers are welcome!
Everyone's preferences can be met in one of the groups, and in all you will find friends and fun.
