Winter solstice hike and practice

1. Hike to the Kumeyaay Observatory for sunrise. The sun's ray appear to be split in two by far off Lyons Peak. OJ served at the t/h and oatmeal, granola, coffee, etc at the site (while supplies last),
2. Practice immediately following at MTRP. Practice is for experienced canyoneers only please.
Breakfast courtesy of a generous grant from the Caffrey Foundation, which donates 100% of its profits to.....well, whatever it decides.
Note: trailhead we will use is the Barker Trailhead. The SD Nat History canyoneers will be leading a hike from the more popular south t/h on Golfcrest. Meetup time is before morning twilight, you will need a headlamp. Kumeyaay polychrome pictograph courtesy of the Caffrey Collection, Cave of the Rising Suns, southern Anza Borrego Desert.

      Report please on hike and especially lunch in Tecate. We might need to do lunch after Kitchen Creek descent or find some other excuse, Corte Madera? Inaja? You know what I like.
