It's that time of year, so we're off to Angle Island for a day of activities, merriment, food, sun, and fun!
PLEASE NOTE: Either meet at the Tiburon ferry at 9:45 or on the island at the picnic area to the right of the dock, past the open field w/ the museum. The hike starts at approx 10:45
Since this is the Spring edition we'll hike 2.5 miles to the top of Mt Livermore for a 360* view of the Bay Area (approx a 775' gain), then come down via the trail on the backside of the island for a total of about 5.5 miles. Not a rough hike by any means, and of course the rating (Moderate) is contingent upon your condition.
We'll leave the food and most of the vino at the picnic area, then hike to the top. We'll bring snacks and some vino to enjoy on top.
What to bring:
Vino (and cups)
Snacks and vino for the hike.
A cooler w/ ice and plenty of food
Food to BBQ (someone please bring a small gas stove)
Sandwiches, wraps, bbq, paella, chicken, meats/cheeses/breads, salads, deserts, the works! As always I'm hoping for plenty of ethnic food. Not just boring hamburgers and hot dogs. We're talking variety here, and lots of spicy food!
Plenty of Vino - we had some really nice bottles last time
Beer, water, soda, juice, whatever you want to whet your whistle
Chips, dips, snacks, and plenty to share
Layered clothing, sunscreen & hat
Hiking boots, or decent hiking shoes
$5 activity fee
Of course your sense of humour and desire for fun is an absolute must!
The hike is optional, so if you want to come chill while we hike and then eat, drink, and be merry w/ the rest of us after the hike - do it! It's always nice to have a few people stay w/ the coolers/food while we hike.
