Our new organizer and patron Michael Chris has planned an outing to Chuchupate and Meetup members are invited to join him. This location is the some one we used for Perseid meteor shower in August. Please note that the viewing are is about one quarter mile past the ranger station toward the campground.
Safety first...plan your trip and bring appropriate provisions. This area (the campground) requires a Wilderness Pass. No reservations are available.
The site by the ranger station does not require a Wilderness Pass and you may spend the night . The nearby campround does require a Wilderness Pass
There are numerous hiking trails in the area if you want to come out early
Pit "facilities" are available for your comfort.
Bring warm clothing...the elevation is 5200 ft. so it can get very cool. A big blanket or sleeping bag may be nice. Prepare for warm and cold, you want to be comfortable.
Bring your own snacks and provisions. Water will help keep you hydrated. Red flashlights only...be courteous to the other attendees. There will probably be some telescopes on site, but,a pair of personal binoculars may be nice to scan through the Milky Way .
Mikes Pizza in the Lockwood Valley seems to have some good reviews on YELP
