San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary
Mar 15, 2014
Our easy hike through the sanctuary will be about 2 hours, 4 miles or so, with an elevation gain/loss of about 100 feet. We will keep a moderate pace to enjoy the flora, fauna, beauty, and peace of this urban oasis. When clear there are spectacular views of Saddleback Mountain and the San Joaquin hills.

The Great Oudoors goes to Griffith Park Observatory
Jan 18, 2014
We all got to see at least one of the Planetarium shows and a few saw one of the Science presentations put on in the new "Leonard Nimoy - Event Horizon" theater. It is a bit hard to schedule yourself into all of the shows, with a Lunch Break, but there was plenty of other "Science" to see, in action.
Orchard Camp Day Hike
Five members and one guest met at the Mt. Wilson Trail Head. We hiked from there up to the Orchard Camp, on a beautiful warm winter day, with a total gain loss of 2,000 feet and a round trip of about 8 miles. The old oak tree at the Camp is one of the oldest trees in the San Gabriel Mountains, dating back about 1,500 years.
