2012 Sunrise Hike

12-05-11: It's that time of year again for our 17th annual Sunrise Hike! Like the past few years, it will be on Blue Mountain (Grand Terrace), thanks to my veterinarian, Dr. Leonard Sigdestad (one of the land owners of Blue Mountain).

TWO hikes!
This year, I've decided to have both a sunrise hike AND a noon hike, so for those of you how party late on NY Eve, you can still join us for a hike.

Check out the info below and hope to see you there!

What: 17th Annual Sunrise Hike

Who: Anyone who wants to start the new year off on the right foot! Feel free to invite your family, friends, co-workers, frenemies...all are welcome!

Where: Blue Mountain, Grand Terrace (Googlemap Palm Ave and Honeyhill Drive, Grand Terrace, and you'll get the exact meeting spot where to park)

When: Jan. 1, 2012. AM hike - meet at 5:30 AM; PM hike - meet at 12:12 PM. We will start hiking shortly after these meeting times.

Why: A tradition I picked up from my stint teaching English and Bible in Japan. We'll hike up to the top, where we will have a New Year's inspirational talk and toast the sunrise as it peaks over the mountain range. All drinks (sparkling cider, cups, etc.) will be provided.

Wear: Dress in layers, especially in the AM when it can be quite cold before sunrise. Noon hikers can dress in a lot less. Has never rained on us so we should be ok. It's a dirt road, so you don't need hiking shoes--old tennis or running shoes are fine.
