The Caltech Postdoc Association is organizing a hike up to Echo Mountain on Independence Day (Friday, 4 July) and you are invited! Echo Mountain is a 3000 ft (1000m) peak located behind Pasadena which can provide views as far away as Catalina Island if the weather is cooperative. Many cities in the area celebrate the 4th of July by shooting off fireworks, so we will be able to watch the fireworks from many different cities across the San Gabriel Valley and LA. However, we will be hiking up the mountain in the late afternoon and it will be hot and dry. Please come prepared with water. We will then hike back down in the darkness, so it would be wise to bring a source of light.
Now’s your chance to present your research to the broader community in a fun, laid-back setting! Please join is at the next Nerd Nite event on Monday, June 23rd to learn more about this fun opportunity to reach out beyond the ivy tower.
Looking for an excuse to leave work a little early next Tuesday? An excuse to ingest unnecessary amounts of caffeine? Look no further than the SoPS coffee hour! Come join us for coffee, tea, muffins, and cookies. Tuesday, June 24, 4-5pm.
Please join us Saturday, June 7th at 10:30AM as we join other LA-area postdocs on a hike to the highest peak in the Santa Monica Mountains!
