Details

NOT THE USUAL DEVIL'S PUNCHBOWL HIKE (the 1-mile loop)

instead: 4 HOURS OF ROCKS AND CAVES EXPLORATION

Difficulty: nothing too crazy, probably get down into the creek and see a waterfall or two.

Maybe we'll see some snow??? (Elevation is around 4600 feet)

DRESS WARM JUST IN CASE; BRING RAIN GEAR, TOO. YOU NEVER KNOW.

(NOTE: HIKE IS "CROSS-POSTED" HERE: http://www.meetup.com/santamonicahikingclub/events/220765064/

so...more than just me and Gern Blanston are coming on this hike)
