So, according to: http://www.meteorshowersonline.com/perseids.html[masked] is the peak of the Perseids meteor shower!
I have been wanting to do a night hike for some time now! This gives us the perfect opportunity! We came up here a few years ago to do a geocache and it has been one of my favorite spots ever since! Prepare for bushwhacking and to be in the dark.
Here are the links to the geocaches:
Postmeridian Blues: http://coord.info/GCW5N7
Midnight Moss: http://coord.info/GC146VQ (if we have time, we may do this as well)
We'll meet at Ingles and leave the parking lot by 7:15 PM.
We will be heading to Yellow Gap Rd which connects Mills River Campground and 276. There will be a moderate hike and again, be prepared for bushwhacking!
Bring the things you would normally bring but make sure you have a headlamp and extra batteries. Also, binoculars or a small telescope would be a good idea.
Thanks and we'll see you on the trail!
