Let's go see the Perseid meteor shower! Work Monday morning, and then take off at lunchtime to meet up at the trailhead in the late afternoon. The moon, which will be approaching full, sets at 2am. Get an early start Tuesday morning, and get your nose back to the grindstone Tuesday afternoon. I have intentionally chosen an easy hike, but Crystal Lakes (2300', 6mi.) and Shriner Peak (3400', 8.4 mi.) are optional alternative destinations if the group is so inclined.
