Let's go join Emily Coffman with River Sports Outfitter on this unique adventure! On January 3 there is a predicted "not guaranteed" peak viewing night for the Quadrantid meteor shower. By headlamp, we will lead you to a great viewing spot in our Knoxville Urban Wilderness. You will need to bring a headlamp/flashlight, very warm hiking clothes, hat, gloves and a sense of adventure.
• SAFETY UPDATE as of 1/2: Factoring in the current trail condition, that large of a group, the added challenge of hiking at night and the steep Tharps Trace trail, we are leaning at making this a meteor shower viewing event rather than a hike. There's a great field space not too far into Tharps Trace trail where we can set up our viewing area. If you can, please make a note minimal change of plans. Which, who knows, may even change again by tomorrow! With the short walk to the field, people are welcome to bring blankets, chairs, stoves for hot-cocoa, etc. Please park towards the back of the Quarry lot, as they will be closer to the viewing field there. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Looking forward to tomorrow night!
