ANOTHER HIKING OPPORTUNITY

Wendy and I have been talking about organizing another hike for anyone interested. Sunday hike to Our Lake (aka Hidden Lake) in the Bob. We’ll have to leave a bit on the early side, trailhead is near Choteau.

Should be gorgeous views. There are two big waterfalls on the hike and often mountain goats on trail. Dogs OK as long as they are under owners control. 7 mile loop with only 1,500 foot elevation gain on the entire hike. Wendy and I will both have bear spray. Recommended for everyone in that area.

Let me or Wendy know if anyone is interested. I did put it out there on the hiking group FB page, also. Wendy and I will go regardless.

P.S. For anyone joining us on the Our Lake hike this Sunday, July 18, meet at my house (315 4th Ave N) at 7am. It’s about a 2 hour drive to the trailhead.

Please bring your 10 essentials and lunch. There should be a few opportunities to refill water bottles if you have water filtration equipment. Otherwise, bring enough water for a 7 mile hike.

Plan on leaving for the trailhead at 7, starting hiking at 9 and returning to the trailhead about 3pm.

ELECTRIC CITY HIKING JEW CREW

Let’s try another hike! Aaron, Devorah and I are planning on going to Augusta to do the Devil’s Glen hike on Saturday June 5th! It is a 6 mile hike and rated as easy.

For anyone that wants to go, meet at our house (315 4th Ave North) Saturday morning, June 5th at 7:30 AM. Bring water, lunch and anything else you think you need – a hat, sunscreen, hiking poles, etc. We will be gone most of the day.

For anyone that wants a less strenuous hike, Get Fit Great Falls is doing their National Trails Day that day and have lots of easier guided options (some even paved) for those who wish to partake. Check out http://getfitgreatfalls.com for more details on the hikes they are offering.

What better way to spend Shabbat than in the wilderness – whether it is on a paved hike or a little further out in nature, let’s get out into the fresh air and get some exercise!

PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR THIS UPCOMING EVENT: RESUMING MONTHLY SERVICES

Due to the pandemic, monthly services were temporarily suspended. Now we are taking tentative steps toward resuming some activities in an effort to get back to more “normal” life.

With this in mind, we would like to resume the lay services led by Devorah Werner the first Friday of the month, May 7, at 6:00 P.M. at the Bethel, with the caveat that if the weather is inclement we will postpone it to the second Friday of the month. We would like to hold our first gathering outside in the courtyard behind the Bethel. There are some picnic tables out there, but you may prefer to bring your own folding chair. We request that you observe state and CDC guidelines regarding the pandemic protocol — wear masks, social distance, do not bring food or drink to share.
