Subject:           Mount Diablo (Clayton) for Sunday - SET YOUR CLOCKS!
From:               John Bondon
Thanks to Andrew and Howard for leading a fantastic hike this past Sunday! We got rained out the first try, but the second attempt turned out to be a fabulous day to be outdoors! And a fun route it was too!

This weekend Helene offers the first of 2 hikes this month at Mount Diablo, from the Clayton side. Says Helene of this Sunday's hike, Join us for a hike to the beautiful Donner Canyon Falls of Mount Diablo. We'll do a little climbing after we traverse the falls to Murchio Gap, then descend Back Creek Trail. Figure about 7-8 miles and 2200 feet elevation gain. Check the website for further details.

Don't forget to set your clocks forward one hour before going to bed Saturday night. Daylight Saving Time officially begins this coming Sunday morning at 2AM. Unfortunately this means we lose an hour of sleep ... :( But we'll gain it back in the fall. :) I SOOOOO look forward to THAT!! :)

I haven't had a chance to put all the finishing touches on the information regarding the upcoming trip to Pinnacles, happening later this month. More information has been posted on the website, but a multiple page PDF (adobe acrobat) file with even more info should be completed this weekend. I also plan to setup a seperate Member's Only type email list as well, for those interested in trying to coordinate carpools and such, however, due to many others demands on my time right now, I haven't had a chance to complete all these tasks. My goal is to get that information out this weekend. Stay tuned --- more to follow!

In the meantime, check the website for further details about each of these upcoming hikes currently posted on the East Bay Casual Hiking website. Remember, in case of rain, check with the hiking leader to determine whether the hike will proceed.

Happy Trails! :)

Happy Trails,
