Details

A great chance to see the peak of the Perseid meteor shower from the open sky of a 14’er (weather permitting – we would like a forecast of “Partly cloudy” or better, but “Mostly cloudy” might work). The nearly full moon will rise about 5:45pm and set about 3:30am, so will overwhelm fainter meteors. We’ll start from the boardwalk at Guanella Pass at about 8 PM, and easily get back in time for work on Monday morning. This should NOT be your first 14nr.

Each participant is expected to carry all 10+ Essentials.

Passcode is same as all my past trips. If you have not hiked with me before, contact me via email to provide recent experience or let me know that you have a C hiker classification.

I like to keep the whole group within yelling distance pretty much all the time, so if you are a free-spirited wanderer, this may not be the trip for you.
