New Year's Day Sunrise Hike

1-1-2010: Happy New Year! Over 40 people showed up at 5:30 AM at the base of Blue Mountain in Grand Terrace (including the Sheriff--called in by a neighbor reporting "suspicious activity"--but by the time I was done talking with him, he wished he was off duty so he could join us!) for my annual sunrise hike.

The full moon lit our hike up so we didn't need to use flashlights, and the temp was just perfect--no wind, too.

After 2 miles of hiking in the dark, we arrived at the top where we shared some words and did a toast with sparkling cider as the sun rose over the San Jacinto mountains.

Now getting ready for the noon hike! Here are pixs from this AM's hike:
