Just a reminder: the Rock City Instameet, hosted by @kt_nestor, is happening tomorrow! It's going to be a beautiful day for a photo walk.
Rock City is a series of large wind swept, sandstone caves located in Clayton (near the city of Danville). Head to the Rock City Parking area off of Mt. Diablo Scenic Blvd. There is a large trail map in the middle parking lot where we will meet. From there, we'll explore the unique geological features of the park. There's also a moderate hike, with a cable-assisted climb to Sentinel Rock if you're feeling a little more adventurous. After an hour of exploring, we'll head up to the Juniper Campground Overlook to watch the sunset over the entire Bay Area.
Some helpful tips:
- Entrance fee to Mt. Diablo State Park is $10
- There is no public transit. Carpooling is encouraged.
- No dogs are allowed on the trails.
- Close toed shoes & layers are highly recommended.
- Bathrooms are located at the base of the Rock City Picnic Area.
- Juniper Campground Overlook is a winding, 20 minute drive from Rock City.

Contact @kt_nestor with any questions or for more information. Hope to see you there!

Repost for @IGersSV: Please join IGersSV for their THIRD ANNUAL Santa Cruz end of summer Instameet. Meet us at the Merry Go Round at the main entrance on Sunday, Sept 8th at 11am. We will walk and take photos from approx. 11 – 2:30. Then we will make our way to Olitas Cantina and Grille. Olitas is located at the SC Municipal Wharf. The Boardwalk is very kid friendly and we encourage you to bring the family out for a great day of shooting beach and boardwalk photos and perhaps getting to know your fellow IGers from Silicon Valley and other Northern California regions. Special shout out to @blylan for this great photo!

Repost for @igersusa: Summer 2013 Vacation Challenge!

Whether enjoying a nice “stay-cation” in your home city or traveling around the globe, we invite you to join the IGers USA Summer Vacation Challenge! Inspired by one of our recent blogs by Lisa Florey (@writegirl) who vacationed in Portland, and in collaboration with our IGers U.S.A. communities, we want to see your best vacation photos! Visit Lisa’s blog for inspiration and follow the challenge rules:

Challenge Rules:
The challenge will run from Monday, July 8th to Saturday, September 21st.
Tag your best, NEW vacation shots with #igersusa_summer2013
If you’re visiting a city that has a local IGers community or you’re part of your local IGers community, tag one or both. For example, the IGers Chicago tag will be #igc_summer2013 for photos from our community members on vacation or for visitors to Chicago. Communities may establish a specific tag for the challenge or use their normal tag – please visit their Instagram feeds for details.
Tell us where you’re from and where you’re vacationing. If you’re enjoying a nice “stay-cation”, let us know too.
One photo will be chosen per week and will be featured in the @igersusa Instagram feed!

Wishing you all a spectacular summer and we look forward to seeing your photos!

The summer solstice is almost upon us. It's hard to find anyone who celebrates this amazing time of year bigger than the country of Iceland.

@reyka_vodka is celebrating this year's solstice by giving away a free trip. Post a sun-inspired picture on Twitter or Instagram using #ReykaSolstice for the chance to win a trip to Iceland.

Check out www(dot)reykasolstice(dot)com for more info. The contest runs through June 28th and you must be a US resident, 25 or older to participate.

Repost for our friends @igerssf: Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year is June 21st, Friday. Sunrise is at 5:48 am and sunset is at 8:34 pm. There will be 2 instameets. The first is at Pier 7 at 5:30 am to catch the sunrise. We'll follow up with coffee at Blue Bottle in the Ferry Building at 7 am. The second will start at Java Beach at 7:45 pm. We'll walk our way to the Pacific Ocean from there.
