Alright folks, it's that time of year again, September in Claremont. Everyone wants to get outside but it's so bloody hot. SOLUTION: leave those pesky pants at home and go hiking in your speedo (or bikini or one piece or overalls or anything really)!! Whatever you feel like wearing, we just want to promote a few principles.

1. Looking good - whatever makes you feel fresh and fierce. For some that's the classic speedo/fanny-pack combo. Bold colors? Great. Neutrals? Great. Sturdy hiking boots? OH YES. 
2. Hydration - bring lot's of water. Drink lot's of water. Hydrate, don't diedrate.
3. On the Looseness - four weeks deep into classes and everyone's gonna need a little time on the loose. Hopefully this will be the first of many outings for you this year.

The hike is somewhat strenuous. It will be 11 miles total and the peak is 10,068 feet; however, there is also a shorter version (turning around at the sierra club ski hut) that offers an amazing view for only about 6 miles hiking. Everyone should bring 2 liters of water, some snacks, and sunscreen (cause those UV rays are vicious above the smog). We'll depart from behind the OEC at 9:00 am so try to arrive by 8:30. 

 

See y'all soon!
