If you have lived in San Jose and occasionally looked west to the Santa Cruz Mountains you have seen the peak with the interesting box on top. That is Mt. Umunhum. From 1957 to 1980 that box served as the base of a radar used by the US Air Force to monitor our airspace during the Cold War. The area has been cleaned up and prepared to be visited by the public to experience expansive views and natural beauty. It will be open to the public for the first time on Sept. 18. The FIT Hiking Club will be exploring it on September 24 at 7 a.m.

SCAM ALERT!!!
My Story
I got scammed. I received an invitation to be a vendor at the "Fun Color Run". I was offered a free booth with table, chairs, etc. There was a website, e-mail for info and phone number. All looked very legit. Vendor had to submit an application and pay $100 to secure their spot. Money was to be refunded upon check in. Cool. I signed up. Payed by credit card and received an e-mail receipt. As the race date got closed I became concerned that I did not receive any info and started calling the number. Always got a voice mail, "thanks for calling the Fun Color Run, leave your name...blah, blah, blah". I sent e-mails. I never got any return calls or e-mail. So I called the hotel where the "Expo" was to be held and was told nothing was scheduled. I then Googled "Fun Color Run Scam" and sure enough, there was no such race. There were stories of the scam targeting racers who would sign up and then either have the race canceled or just never occur. Maybe this is a new angle to scam vendors. The "Fun Color Run" scam has occurred all over the country.

I normally would be wary of having to pay something up front, but the use of "Color Run", a legitimate race, in their title, the pics, the website and the contact info all looked legit. 

I thought I would pass this on so you don't get scammed in the future.
