We will watch the second supermoon of the year from Daniel's Park, known for its beautiful sunsets and views. We will hike for about 3 miles round trip before sharing a picnic and watching the supermoon rise at 8:10pm and the sunset at 8:22pm. if you do not wish to hike, you can join the group for just the picnic and watching the supermoon rise.

Bring a dish to share with the group.

    helping with gas as a ride along. Either
    way I'm good with it.

    July 18, 2013

    • Judy D.

      From where are you coming? If you cam meet us at the Arapahoe Park and Ride there's room in my van for you. I think there's anothe group carpooling from C470 and University. See Kat Spencer's group below. I think we should have as few cars as possible at Daniels because there is not a lot of parking there.

      July 19, 2013
