Sunset is a magical time! Join us for a fun, moderately-paced social hike, starting in daylight and finishing before pitch-dark. We usually aren't disappointed in the changing light show.  We will stop at a viewpoint and all are invited (but not required) to bring snacks to share (unless it is nasty out, then we will keep hiking!)

Forecast is for snow (again!) We will stick to the South Mesa Trail, which is road-like for the first 2.5 miles (we won't go farther than the mouth of Shadow Canyon).  Bring traction devices and/or trekking poles, as it will be sniwpacked and possibly icy underneath.

To better track participation, please register ahead of time for this trip but it is also OK to show up at the carpool location.

Come prepared for any weather with good footwear, rain jacket, headlamp or flashlight, and traction devices if trails may be icy.  Option for after-hike food and drink at a nearby restaurant.






Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
