Bring a headlamp and comfy hiking shoes or boots. This time I'll remember the cocoa ;-) What I came up with. Hiking through Finn Hill and St Edwards Park, followed by a bonfire at my house in Kenmore.
I would suggest that people meet around 6:30 at the Kenmore Park and Ride and carpool to the parking lot by the QFC, since if everyone drives there own car, with[masked] cars, we will have a headache.
Here is the address for the park and ride, 7346 N.E. Bothell Way, Kenmore ,I will stop by it at 6:30 and load up as many as I can carry.
Haven't you ever looked through the moonlit woods and thought to yourself what a nice place this would be for a hot cocoa with friends. I'm planning on hauling a stove so that we can have cocoa with the best people and the best views.
We will hike the trails at St Edwards down to the lake and back, followed by a post function potluck and Bonfire at my house. We'll be doing an evening (approx 4-5 miles) hike through the woods. If this group is full check the other one for open spots, posted in GUGO and in PNWH&B. This is a cross posted event, I have cross posted this to the Pacific NW Hiking Group and the Get Up and Get Out Group as well as placed links in SOA. If it's full here look in the other group.
I will be coming from work in Redmond and can pick people up along the way, If you want to be picked up let me know and we'll work it out, otherwise just meet us at the Park & Ride or in the shopping center on Juanita Drive, across the street from St Edwards Park. After the hike we will caravan to my house for the bonfire and potluck. I expect that the potluck and Bonfire will start at about 9:30pm and go to about midnight.
Saul's cell[masked] I added my address to those of you that are only coming to the bonfire: [b]my address if you are just coming to the bonfire[masked]th Ave NE, Kenmore, WA 98028 [b] If you don't have GPS, then look at a map "carefully" as their are 3 60th Ave NE sections in the area and they don't connect.
If you get lost, read an address or cross street and call my cell[masked] and I will be able to give you directions. The most basic directions from Lake City Way/Bothell Way/Highway 522. Head north on 61st Ave NE (right turn if coming from Bothell, left turn if coming from Seattle). Go 0.9 mile to a gentle left on to 60th. If it is a hard left or is up a steep hill then it is the wrong 60th. Go 0.2 mile to the intersection with 200th and my house will be on the right. Park in the driveway or go back 100 feet and park by the sidewalk. If you get to streets with names or with SE on the sign, then you went too far and you are in Snohomish County. My driveway at my house can hold maybe 15 cars and the street another 15-20, so carpooling is a good idea.
