Mt. Pisgah Sunset/Moonrise

Tuesday, October 11, 2011
Leader: Janet Jacobsen
Hike: 2.8 miles, 1000 ft (Easy)

A downpour earlier in the day surprisingly eased to blue skies for our sunset/moonrise hike. We started up the trail at 5:15 p.m. to be on top for the moonrise at 6:08 pm. We enjoyed visiting while we patiently waited for the white full moon to appear above the eastern hills. There were low clouds to the west so the sun dropped out of sight before the 6:36 p.m sunset time. Since it was a warm evening and the moon was putting on quite a show, we didn’t rush back to our cars. A reminder for next year is that the hike could have started 20 minutes later.
