Subject: Black Diamond Mines and Angel Island
From: John Bondon
This weekend I have tennis obligations, and will be unavailable for hiking. But our FearLess Leader, Brian, will be at the Black Diamond Mines in Antioch for an early start at 8:30AM. Then in two weeks, Diane and Harold will lead a hike at Angel Island!
Don't miss these great hikes! You can learn more about either hike, including directions for where to meet, by visiting the East Bay Casual Hiking website.
Also, a friendly reminder to ask that you please say good-bye or otherwise formally inform the hiking leader when you depart from the group. Please make sure the leader acknowledges your intent to depart early, as well. There have been a few occasions on recent hikes where we ended up looking for someone that had left early.
No problem, of course, if you wish to leave early, just please make sure you tell someone face-to-face and they acknowledge you, so there are no misundertandings later. As a hiking leader, your attention is often diverted, and someone waving goodbye to you in the distance may not mean the same thing to both parties. :)
I will be unavailable most of August for hiking, so if anyone else is interested in leading some hikes, please let me know!
Happy Trails! :)
