Mt. Pisgah Sunrise/Moonset

Saturday, December 10, 2011
Leader: Janet Jacobsen
Hike: 3 miles, 1000 ft (Moderate)

Three nonmembers met me in the dark at 6:40 a.m. at the new yellow fee box by the trailhead. The total moon eclipse began at 4:45 ending at 6:57, the sunrise was at 7:36 a.m. and the moonset was at 7:42 a.m. We had no reason to check the time since heavy fog kept the celestial happenings hidden from view. There were lots of people hiking and those that we talked to did not know what they were missing and thus were not disappointed. I discovered that Lou Bentsen was the son of members, Dick and Mary Bentsen, now deceased. I expect to see these folks on another hike perhaps later in the day or on April 14, 2014 for the next total lunar eclipse.

Members: Janet Jacobsen. Nonmembers: Diantha Hull, Jorry Rolfe, Lou Bentsen.
