Come join us for some zesty summit sammies on top Southern California’s talllllest peak, Mt Baldy. We’ll be cruising out of USC midday on Friday for a strenuous but beautiful hike up the bald beast, culminating in a summit cruise session and an EPIC sunset enhanced by killer views and mild smog. After the sun slips below the horizon, we’ll hunker down for the night surrounded by stars and city lights. Saturday morning, inspired by a spectacular sunrise, we’ll walk down the mountain together and head back to USC.

TL;DR sunsets, sunrises, sandwiches and sparkling city lights, what’s not to love?
