Pisgah Moon Hike

Sunday, March 12, 2017
Leader: Mike Smith
Hike: 4 miles, 1000 ft (Moderate)

We had eight people show up for the Mt. Pisgah hike, each of us walking in the fewest layers we have had on in a long time! Between sunset and moonrise, we had good views of Middle and South Sister, with Diamond Peak and a little bit of Mt. Moran also present. While the Sun disappeared behind thick clouds to the west, the Moon rose just south of South Sister, only a few thin clouds present. Because of the delay between sunset and moonrise, it was very dark going down. The trail was not too muddy, and about 15 people altogether saw moonrise from the summit.

Members: Mike Smith, Kathy Randall, Marguerite Cooney, Meg Stewart Smith, Denise Egri, Serge Faumont, David Lodeesen, Brad Bennett.
