    Hi All,

    I'll be leading this hike on Sunday.

    If you're coming from Santa Barbara, you can meet at the Bank of America on State St. and Hope at 8:20 AM to arrange for carpooling to the trailhead. Tony and Diane will be there.

    It looks like it will be a great hiking day on Sunday. Mostly sunny with temps in the high 40s to low 50s. Bring layers. There may still be some snow on the north side of the ridge where we'll be hiking.

    Note that you don't have to sign up via meetup to attend this hike, nor do you need to be a member of the Sierra Club. However, you will be required to sign the standard Sierra Club waiver.
