0800 at the trailhead.  Be ready to start hiking by 0830.

This should be a relatively tame trip, but a creek crossing is likely, so bring water shoes. The hike up to our camp area is relatively short, which leaves plenty of time for exploring the area.  Lots of cool geology to explore in the area and hopefully lots of stars at night.
