Mt. Pisgah - Equinox

Sunday, March 20, 2011
Leader: Janet Jacobsen
Hike: 3 miles, 1000 ft (Moderate)

The parking lot was jammed with cars for a wedding in the pavilion. That meant we had a bit of a hike to reach the meeting place. Thus we started a few minutes late but we think we reached the top at 4:21 p.m. for the vernal equinox when the sun crosses directly over the earth’s equator. Rick Ahrens explained the background and patiently demonstrated the orientation of the Mt. Pisgah Sighting Pedestal. On the way down, Rich Locus introduced us to the 2010 Slug Queen, Slugasana, who graciously agreed to a group photo. At the parking lot, the departing bride and groom suddenly stopped their car in front of us, jumped out and asked Susan Sanazaro to take a Polaroid picture of them. All of this kerfuffle celebrated the first day of spring.

Members: Janet Jacobsen, Susan Sanazaro, Lisa Marcus, Royal Murdock, Jim Whitfield, Lana Lindstrom, Darko Sojak, Rick Ahrens, Mari Baldwin. Nonmembers: Rich Locus, Kathie Carpenter.
