Mt. Pisgah-Sunset/Moonrise

August 16, 2008

At 5 p.m. it was 90 degrees and three people had canceled the 6:30 p.m. hike scheduled up Mt. Pisgah for the almost simultaneous setting of the sun and rising of the full moon. Braving the heat were John Agnew, LaRee Beckley, Martha Welches, and leader, Royal Murdock. We started out from the Mount Pleasant trailhead at 6:30 p.m. and were in the shade of the mountain and enjoyed the gentle breeze which cooled us to the summit. Clouds had formed and turned the western sky crimson in the setting sun. The full moon seemed late, very late. Finally, it emerged from behind a cloud bank for a few moments, then remained mostly hidden as we descended the mountain.
