Meetup Change: JPL HIke is now Lower Arroyo Hike (Hiking/Photography/UE Level 1)

From: Eddie
Sent on: Wednesday, November 3, 2010 1:34 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for Urban Adventures!

What: Lower Arroyo Hike (Hiking/Photography/UE Level 1)

When: Saturday, November 13,[masked]:30 AM

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)

Since the JPL hike trails are closed this is changing from an upper Arroyo hike to a lower Arroyo hike.

This hike will be a mixture of outdoors and urban landscape.

http://www.localhikes.com/Hikes/LowerArroyoSeco_4472.asp

The Arroyo Seco is on the western edge of the City of Pasadena and extends 8 miles through the City. It is the City?s largest natural open space and physically described as a deeply cut canyon linking the San Gabriel Mountains to the Los Angeles River containing the intermittent stream for which it is named. The Arroyo Seco meanders south through the canyon and past various cities, joins the Los Angeles River, and continues on to the Pacific Ocean.

We will also cross the Colorado Street bridge, which while being beautiful, also has the sad distinction of being known as and "Suicide Bridge" and has a history of being haunted.
