Full Moon Hike from 40th Street Trailhead in Phoenix

Note summer start time: 6:30.  We'll welcome Mr. Moon as he rises at 7:29.  And he's another SUPER MOON!!!   Here's where I get my moon info

http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/astronomy.html?n=197&month=7&year=2013&obj=moon&afl=-11&day=1

Length: about 3 miles, but don't let the short distance fool you - it's very steep

Time: between hiking and picnicking - about 2-3 hours

What to bring: headlamp/flashlight, water of course, picnic items to share - veggies & dip, crackers & cheese, fruit, whatever suits your fancy

Note: the trail is steep and rather rocky; not recommended for beginners

Directions to trailhead: take Shea Blvd to 40th Street, turn south and go a few blocks to the parking lot at the end of the road.  See me in the little red lexus.

 

I'm collecting $1 to donate to the meetup fund to cover costs of managing the site, thanks to our fearless leader Gary. 

 

RSVP's open July 9th.

    I believe it has the very official name of "peak 2429". They ran out of ideas for names that day and just named it after its elevation which of course is 2429 feet.

      It's now called Dixie Peak. It was nameless before, as far as I could research.
