On December 28th, the sun sets at 4:56 pm and the moon rises at 5:29 pm.
Here's the plan:
We'll hike under the full moon to our destination at the lake and there we'll share dinner & vino, and enjoy the beautiful moon and the moonlit landscapes. I love being out during this time because of the way the landscape is lit and everything has such a unique feel.
It's said that the werewolves are known to roam on full moon nights, so protection is always an issue on these hikes
Did someone mention silver bullets? We don't need no stinking bullets!
And whatever you do don't even think of bringing your Wolfman Jack collection!
This hike is definitely not for the faint of heart, so
Bring your sense of adventure!
This hike is posted on several other Meetup sites, including...
What To Bring:
VINO ~ A hike is not complete w/out vino, so let's start there. Bring the bottle of your choice - something nice of course!
FOOD ~ Dinner and snacks. Skies the limit, just use your imagination. Cheese and crackers, sandwiches, hot soup, hot tea? Just bring enough to share, as that's part of the fun.
Flashlight, or headlamp. If someone could bring a lantern that would be really cool. We want to see the trail and I don't want hikers stumbling off into the night never to be seen or heard from again! I almost lost a hiker the last time we tried this.
A Blanket. We'll decide at the trailhead how many blankets we want.
Warm clothes, and decent shoes for walking/hiking.
$5 fun fee for this hike - thx!
From Hwy 101 take Hwy 12 East and when it hits the street, keep going straight about 2 miles 'till it Tees at Summerfield Dr. Turn Right there and go 3 blocks and turn Left on Carissa, which you'll follow up the hill to the clearing and park there.
Need I mention your sense of humour is required?
Would I ever take you anywhere that's not fun?
