August 2012 will have two full moons this year. Friday, Augst 31, the full moon will rise about 7:45 PM and sets at about 6:45 AM on Saturday. We will meet at the Mokuelumne Beach RV park launch site at 8:00 PM for a 2.5 mile run up to Ferdun Ranch Beach turnaround. Bring your headlights, bug repellent, and sturdy shoes for walikng around the parking area. Plan on being out until around 11:00 PM. This is an easy paddle with minimal river obstructions and some really great views for nighttime paddling. Launch fee is $5 per boat. Fees need to paid before launch at the resort office drop box.
