  • We generally have about one hike each month. If you don't see one here, check our past hikes to get a sense of what we do. We'll have a new hike posted soon.

    We also offer a few multi-day trips each year. Our "regulars" tend to be Death Valley (Dec 28-Jan 1) and Mt. Lassen (summer). This gives people an opportunity to enjoy the campfire with other "science geeks." Events tend to be low key, and on some hikes I know more about the local geology than other hikes, but other members often fill in with information when I'm lacking :-)

    If you'd like to suggest a hike, or look at hikes others have suggested, go to Discussions ... Message Boards ... Suggested New Hikes.

    Hello Lee,
    What are the plans for the Death Valley excursion?

    Any interest in Death Valley 12/29-31? It's a wonderful place for "renewal". It had a great flood recently which has changed the terrain. Wildflowers abound. Also, Zabriskie Pt. has reopened after an upgrade.
