Mountain Day West

Here at Smith, the annual Mountain Day took place more than a month ago. Out in southern California, however, Mountain Day arrives this Saturday, Nov. 8.

Point Mugu State Park

The Smith College Club of Los Angeles is calling it Mountain Day West, a daylong hike for club families at Point Mugu State Park in Big Sycamore Canyon.

“In honor of Mountain Day (but recognizing that leaves turn color a bit later in Southern California than in Northampton!) we will hold a family friendly hike, on Saturday, November 8, 2008, commencing at 10:30 a.m.,” says a club announcement of the event.

Point Mugu State Park is located in northern Malibu on the Pacific Coast Highway about 50 miles north of downtown Los Angeles.

Smith College Club of L.A. members and their families will hike 6.5 miles through the park, a hike “for the hearty,” the announcement warns. A 4-mile option will also be offered, “for those who prefer a more gentle hike.”

For many here in the east, where winter’s chill huffs around the corner, a hike in sunny southern California on Mountain Day West sounds perfect.
