We will be doing a moderate hike ( about 6 miles) in the Capitol Forest to celebrate the Winter Solstice. I am expecting there to be snow, so be prepared for it. I am not bringing Snowshoes, but I will bring my micro spikes, just in case.
In the next couple days I will post more detailed information about the hike but I wanted to let people know about it, as I was figuring things out.
Warning: We will be celebrating the Winter Solstice, this is not a religious event but some aspects might be considered so. If you might be offended, please do not attend.
This hike requires full participation. I want to have fun and enjoy myself, while celebrating the Solstice. There will be one surprise activity and a lantern procession ( not the whole hike, just a section). Everyone needs to bring a lantern. You can get them for around $10 at Ross, Fred Meyers ect.. or you can make your own www.ernc.org/documents/MilkCartonLanternInstructions.pdf . No open flames. I will have extra tea light candles, and battery operated ones.
Pass: Discover Pass
No Guests : Everyone needs to be a member
