New Year's Day Sunrise Hike!

Join us for our 17th Annual New Year's Day Sunrise Hike up Blue Mountain. This year, we will have TWO (2) hikes for those who can't get up before dawn on 1/1 2012. Check out the information below and hope you, family, and friends join us for a great way to kick off the new year!

When: Jan. 1, 2012. 5:30 AM and 12:12 PM

Where: Blue Mountain, Grand Terrace. Meet at intersection of Palm Ave. and Honeyhill Drive. (For Google map location, click here.) It's a little over 2 miles to the top.

Who: Anyone interested in starting off the new year with this mountain top experience! Families, dogs, kids...all welcome!

What to wear: Dress in layers...the weather can be warm or freezing. Fortunately, it hasn't rained on us in all these years (knock wood!). Tennis/running shoes are ok to hike up this dirt road to the top.

What to expect: The hike can be strenuous in spots, so feel free to take breaks. It's about 2 miles to the top. Once at the top, I will pass out cups of sparkling cider so we can toast the sunrise as it comes up. Also have someone give a short New Year's day inspirational talk, and then you're free to enjoy the view or head back down!

Special thanks to Dr. Leonard Sigdestad for lending me the key to unlock the gate and giving us permission to do this every year!
