Insidn Th utd oors By LOUISE B. MARSHALL Alpine Lakes Proposals The Forest Service Management proposals for the Alpine Lakes area, lying mostly between Snoqualmle and Stevens Pass on the Cascade Crest, will be presented to the public beginning next week. To hikers, trail riders and climbers the Al- pine Lakes country is more than just another place in the Cascades. It's a roll call of old friends like Lake Dorothy, Melakwa, and Rachel; Denny Moun- tain, Lundin, and Red; Jack Creek, Gold Creek and Icicle River. It's memories of familiar places like Commonwealth Basin, Necklace Valley, La Bohn Gap. Within its 1500 square miles are more than 600 superb high mountain lakes. No other mountainous area in the nation, perhaps the world, has so many. Our Alpine Lakes country is shrinking, push- ed back by roads, timbersales, dams, super- highways, mining, and real estate and recrea- tional developments. Efforts to protect it have been going on since 1937. Various management alternatives have been Center, Seattle, and January 31 at Skykomlsh High School Gymnasium.

The Cats overwhelmed fourth rated Arlington with a stingy zone to capture a 61-45 victory -- nearly 20 points below the offensive output of the Arlington squad. Bacon said it was the 2-3 zone that stymied Arlington and praised the defensive work of Jim Brtson and Craig Webster. The two back court men repeatedly stole the ball and combined for 11 assists on the offensive end of the court. Brtson led Monroe's scoring with 20 tallies. Not trying to single out any in- dividual player the coach said, "It was the best night thus far this season for the team. All the fel- lows worked together and they really clicked." The Cats swept the backboard for 42 rebounds with Rick Anderson, Dwight Benedict and Bill Stansberry each hauling down 10 each. Stansberry hit 17 buckets for the evening, 12 in the opening stanza when the Bearcats built a solid 18-12 lead. By the midwaypotnt the score- suggested. The Forest Service, at asertesof Sp rting public meetings, will attempt to familiarize Sultan o Goods people with its land use planning process and explaln its plans. They will be discussed Jan- uary 24 at Eames Theater, Pacific Science Rema/ns Undefeated With the season four weeks old, Sultan Sporting Goods remains as the lone undefeated team in Monroe Town League Basketball action. The Sultan squad maintained its clean slate with an 80-62 victory over previously unbeaten Bank of Everett. Bob Broughton led the Sporting Goods with 23 tallies while Don Keeler cashed in on 20 for the bank- ers. Boston Pizza House remained just a game behind Sultan in Division I standings with a tight 57-56 triumph over the Skins. Paul George stretch- ed the net with 19 forthepizzacrew. Trans Sales stepped into a first place knot with the Bank of Everett in Division II with a 98-77 blitz over Eastern Meat.

It's not such a wild idea since it has already happened several large groups have ended up in the same Basin sometimes at the same camp- site and at tl'.e same time. Bad news, for sure. In hopes of preventing such conflicts in sched- uling, a day-long seminar is being held atCamp Long, 5200 35th Avenue S.W., Seattle (583-5824) January 20. All groups or organizations with backpack programs are invited to send a rep- resentative. Snow Tours Off U.S. 2 Eastern Meat 0 4 3 1 DIVISION II When the crowds rush to the manicured slopes carrying their expensive ski outfits, Brad Brad- ley, professional alpine guide, gets away from the masses in his favorite touring areas. He pulls on loose-fitting wool hiking clothes and soft comfortable touring boots and heads up the Stevens Pass Highway (U.S. 2) to Sky- komlsh. "My favorite rest stop," he says, "is the Antique Hotel, and in the vicinity is almost any type of terrain that a skier or snowshoer would like." When we asked him to be more specific, these were his suggestions: Just east of Grotto before entering the tun- nel, turn right, across the Skykomtsh River to Money Creek, the West Fork and the East Fork Miller River Roads. Here is easy tour- ing beside sparkling mountain streams. If a level practice area is desired take the road east out of Skykomish on the south side of the river to the emergency airport. Also close to Skykomlsh are the Beckler River Road, north off U.S. 2, and four good areas reached by the Foss River Road: Tonga Ridge Road, East Fork Foss Trail, West Fork Foss Trail and Maloney Ridge Road. All of these have multiple possibilities depending on how amtltlous one feels.
