New! Cave Basin Geology Hike

Sunday, June 13, 8:00 am Register by Email

Before his untimely death, our Bob Thompson, aka Vallecito Bob, contributed articles about two geology hikes in our newsletter. As a bit of a memorial tribute to Bob, this hike will follow the description of his Cave Basin hike as appeared in our March SO! Highlights. For complete details about this hike please refer to that article, which you can reach here. Our SO! Program Director, geologist Jeff Brame, will co-lead this hike and provide geologic observations along the way. Arrangements to meet at the start of Middle Mountain Road above Vallecito Lake will be acceptable. The route includes about ten miles on a gravel road which is fairly washboard, so HC or 4WD is helpful.
Limit 15. Dogs OK. SO! outings are restricted to members who are fully vaccinated.
