Let's go to Vasquez Rocks (http://parks.lacounty.gov/wps/portal/dpr/Parks/Vasquez_Rocks_Natural_Area), a park with awesome rock formations that's been a filming site for lots of movies and TV shows (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasquez_Rocks) -- you may know it as the place where Captain Kirk fought the Gorn in 'Star Trek' (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1eFdUSnaQM)! We can hike, climb on the rocks, check out the visitors center, and do some picknicking.
For those who want to carpool with the group, we'll meet at 9:30 a.m. at the Fullerton Park and Ride at W. Orangethorpe Ave. and Magnolia Ave. in Fullerton. From the Park and Ride, it's about 1 hour 15 minutes to the park. If you plan to join the carpool group, please let us know!
A few things to bring:
- Food/drinks -- we'll plan to have a picnic lunch when we arrive. If you don't pack food, you can always pick some up at the In N Out in Santa Clarita (http://www.yelp.com/biz/in-n-out-burger-canyon-country), which you'll find about 7 miles before you reach the park.
- Sunscreen and/or a hat -- shade is hard to come by at Vasquez Rocks
- Shoes with good tread, especially if you plan to climb up the rocks
For anyone who's interested, we'll plan to grab some dinner after we explore the park
Hope you can make it!
