This Thursday's Contemplative Hike at Sugarloaf Mountain

Hello contemplative hikers!

The very first MeetUp for this group is this Thursday, July 15th, for a sunset hike up Sugarloaf Mountain. Sugarloaf Mountain is a 20 minute drive into the foothills from downtown Boulder. The hike up the hill is moderate (not too steep) and it takes about a half an hour or so to make it up to the top if you walk a steady pace. I'm hoping we can take our time, enjoy the views, and then spend some time at the top where it's fairly flat and there are good places to sit and see all around - from the mountains west to the Plains east.

Right now there are 8 RSVPs "yes" and 2 "maybe's". Please consider updating your RSVP if you cannot come or if you changed your mind. I need to limit the amount of hikers due to the limited parking at the trailhead and also because a smaller group is better for this kind of thing. There is at least one person who is on a waiting list for this hike.

My plan for Thursday's hike is to introduce myself, give you all some things to think about as we hike up, then we'll do the hike silently to the top. We can check in and offer any insights as we take in the views at the top. Then we'll silently hike back down and share insights on the last 15 minutes down.

You can find me at the trailhead. I'll be driving a maroon Toyota FJ Cruiser and will lean a cardboard "MeetUp" sign by my car. I'll wait until at least 6:15 for everyone who is coming to show up. If you're late, feel free to come on up the hill and join us at the top.

IMPORTANT:
If the weather is stormy that evening, I'll be canceling the hike. The top of the mountain is exposed and dangerous when there's lightning. Feel free to call me if you're unsure of the status of the Meetup at[masked] (cell).

CARPOOLING FROM BOULDER:
I will be at the northwest corner of the Target Parking lot on 28th Street and Pearl in my maroon FJ at 5:15 pm, and I can pick up at least 3 people for the drive up. Please call[masked] or email me at [address removed] if you'd like to hop in with me.
