Full Moon Hike, Potluck, & Bonfire

Once again the Sugarloaf State Park Rangers have given us special permission to hold this event, and I want to say how appreciative I am that they were wiling to work w/ me to make this happen.  (The park is normally closed at sunset, unless you're camping there.)

Here's the plan:

We'll take a hike under the full moon, enjoying the moonlit landscapes of Sugarloaf at night, then return to our cars and take our supplies to the picnic area where we'll share a potluck meal, plenty of vino, have a bonfire, roast marshmallows, make smores, and enjoy the park at night. 

Sugarloaf is beautiful under a moonlit sky.  We'll hike through meadows, and over a creek, so there will be lots to see.  The trail we'll take is wide and mostly level, and meanders back to our picnic spot.  Elevation gain if about[masked]' on this one.

Total distance is 3 miles and the hike is rated easy, though I'm told I can't read a map nor understand anything about distances, so your guess is as good as mine!

 Be sure to bring your sense of adventure!

What To Bring:

VINO (and cups)~ A hike is not complete w/out vino, so let's start there. Bring the bottle of your favourite - something nice of course!

FOOD ~ Dinner and snacks. Sky's the limit, just use your imagination. Cheese and crackers, sandwiches, burritos, pizza, pasta, salads, soup, tea?  Just bring plenty to share it's a potluck, isn't it?

Flashlight, or headlamp. We want to see the trail and I don't want hikers stumbling off into the abyss.  Last month we lost a hiker to a savage man eating newt. It was bloody awful!

A Blanket might be nice at the picnic table - they make nice padding for picnickers.

Warm clothes, and decent shoes for walking/hiking.

$5 activity fee

Need I mention your sense of humour is required?

Directions:

GPS [masked],[masked]

Meet at the corner of Hwy 12 and Adobe Canyon Rd.

We will carpool/caravan in from there.

At the park entry/ranger booth get an envelope to pay for parking.

Come expecting a good time (would I lead you into anything else?), bring your good attitude, along w/ your willingness to laugh and encourage others.

This event is posted on several Meetup sites so it will be a good opportunity to make new friends.
