July 2011 Liturgical Hike

Pacheco Canyon Fire Day 1

Smokey Greetings All,

The Pacheco Canyon Wildfire and resulting stage III fire restrictions are making the planning for our July hike interesting to say the very least.  I had actually been talking with folks at the Valle Caldera about the possibility of bringing a group of more than 10 folks up for our July hike (10 being the default limit for any given reservation time there).  But as of yesterday morning the Valle Caldera is under stage III fire restrictions also and so there will be no hikes until those restrictions are lifted.  Once those restrictions are lifted I'll reschedule a Caldera hike for later in the summer.

All that being said, we will hike "somewhere" on July 3rd.  Please plan on meeting in the St. Bede's parking lot (map) at 8:30am and leave there at 8:45am.

As always, please come prepared to hike with proper footwear, clothing for the expected weather that day, plenty of water and at least a hearty snack.  Please follow this link  (http://www.americanhiking.org/Resources/How-Tos/) for the How-Tos of hiking from the American Hiking Society for important information, including the 10 Essentials of Hiking.

Blessings & I'll see you on the trail,

Jon+
