Wildflower Hike and Vegan Picnic

I received a tip this week that the wildflowers at Harvey Bear Ranch County Park are amazing right now. The park is 25 - 30 miles south of downtown San Jose. Let's meet for an afternoon hike/wildflower walk, admire the beautiful flowers and scenery, and find a nice spot to sit and relax for a leisurely vegan potluck picnic. We'll meet at 12:30 and set out promptly at 12:45. Hike distance will probably be @6 miles. Bring plenty of water, sturdy shoes, sunscreen, a hat, vegan food for the potluck picnic, and your own plate, cup, cutlery etc. Blankets to sit on and a bottle of wine might not be out of the question either :-)

Carpooling is highly recommended. Please note in your reply if you need a ride or can offer a ride. There is a park entrance fee, probably @$6 per car. I can offer a ride from the Mountain View area for up to 2 people. Here's a link to the park site. We're using the Bear Ranch entrance:

I've cross listed this event with the Bay Area Lovers of Vegetarian Dining group, to get all of us like-minded herbivores together. See: http://www.meetup.com.... If you RSVP'd on one site, no need to RSVP on the other.

    Jeff is an awesome leader and we earned our yummy picnic! Saw some nice flowers, snake, mouse, caterpillar, cows, spiders all in the presence of awesome people.

    The weather was fantastic, and the company of people and the great food was really worthwhile. Allergies were a problem for me, but that was to be expected.

    The weather's looking perfect!! I'll probably make some kind of yummy salad. Let's have a slow lazy sunday afternoon.

    I think I am going old school on this one, and I am making peanut butter and raspberry preserve sandwiches! Vegan, of course! Bread too!

    Hey Sameer, perhaps we should plan on carpooling together from MV. Angelica, can you get down to Mtn View to ride with us?

    I can give you a ride, OceanGirl. Just send me an email with your contact info and location so we can coordinate a rideshare.
