It’s Monday and you know what that means… only 5 more days until the weekend!
Start your weekend off with a Star Party this Friday evening at Sycamore Canyon. Join the San Diego Astronomers Association and park staff at the Hwy 67 staging area for a night with the stars. Come experience the chance to view our galaxy using the same technology used by the professionals. Viewers will get a chance to see many amazing sights, depending on the time of year, which they wouldn’t normally see without the trained eye of the astronomers. Check out the County Parks and Recreation Guide for more info, or visit our Events page for more upcoming activities.
Help save El Cap! The San Diego River Park Foundation is currently trying to raise money to acquire a piece of private property on El Cajon Mountain. You can help conserve this monument of San Diego Hiking by donating or sharing their page with your friends.
You knew this already, but watch out for rattlesnakes. NBC San Diego reports a hiker was bitten in Ramona last Wednesday. Keep your eyes open and be careful when stepping over rocks or logs.
Need some new trail shoes? Lightweight water sandals from Teva and other brands are great for summer’s water activities. Amazon has great deals on a wide variety of outdoor shoes right now. I got these Teva Women’s Toachi 2 Sandals for my birthday and they are awesome for playing in rivers or hiking on the beach.
Amazon also has select premium backpacks up to 30% off, including Osprey, Black Diamond, Mountainsmith, and Camelbak.
Have a good week!
