Sunday February 11 Hike:

Su is planning this group hike. Following is her message to the group:

Hello Brea Runners:

I am planning a hike for Sunday February 11th to Ladder Canyon in Mecca (near Palm Springs).   It is a little under 5 miles and 1000 feet gain.  

First the bad:  this hike is very far so we’ll have to meet very, very early. I mean in the pitch black dark early, like 5:30 am in Brea to start hiking around 8:30-9 am.   Because we’ll have to carpool in SUV’s (there is a 7 mile dirt road to get to the trail head) , we’ll need to know in advance who is going.  Also I suggest a payment of $15-20 to the driver of the SUV for gas. 

Please email me gosugo@hotmail.com if you are interested in going especially if you have an SUV and are willing to drive.  Trip will be rescheduled if it is hot (above 90 degrees) or raining.   Please let me know by Feb 7th so we can finalize logistics for this far journey to another land.   

The good:  See pictures below.  This slot canyon is a lot closer than Utah.  We’ll pass by Cabazon outlet where they have a Nike and Asics outlet in case you’re interested.
