This meeting will take the form of a walk/hike through Elysian Park. We will meet at the corner of N. Broadway Ave. and Casanova St. We will start the hike a little after 9:00 am. The entire trip will be LESS than 3 miles and should take LESS than 2 hours to walk, fate permitting.

I will bring a small print-out full of relevant Stoic quotations that we can reflect on as we walk (about nature and how one can practice Stoicism on the go). Feel free to bring anything Stoic-related to share... but feel free NOT to bring anything, except what you might want for a hike...

WHAT SHOULD YOU BRING: First, some comfy walking shoes - hiking boots or running shoes seems fine. Second, water. Third, a shady hat and/or sunglasses. Optional: we may encounter some tall plants, so consider wearing long socks or pants.

MORE DETAILS ON HIKE: I plan to make the hike a loop... The first 1800 ft. (with an elevation gain of 215 ft.) to the top of Buena Vista Hill is the only semi-strenuous part of the trip. After admiring the view of DTLA, we´ll proceed down Buena Vista Dr. / Park Row Dr. until we get to the head of a leisurely dirt trail, which will take us to Angel´s Point Rd. After admiring the view of Northeast LA, We´ll then make our way down to Elysian Park proper. We´ll take Academy Rd. / Solano Ave. back to Broadway Ave. - back to where we started (this last bit includes a short pedestrian tunnel that goes underneath the 110 freeway). The hike should actually take about 90 min I think, but we should allot more time just in case.

If anyone intends to take the Gold Line Metro to the Chinatown station, feel free to notify me - I myself plan to be there at around 8:30 am.
