All most FULL MOON - BUCK MOON urban hike will be in full bloom tonight. 94% waxing gibbous will light our way and provide enough light in the sections that are not lit artificially. I usually run a tougher event, off on the trails, but I've only hosted ONE "urban hike" and we want more!
Join me as we meet at the Don White Memorial Park (south, gravel lot by the Volleyball courts) and we'll meander down the path thru some nagging construction by the bridge over Vickery Creek (Big Creek) and down along the boardwalk to the small lot at the other end close to where the Wileo construction begins.
This event is a NIGHT HIKE under a full moon so you may need a lamp, torch, cell phone to help light the way if it's cloudy or partly cloudy. The path is lit in some places, but pitch black in others...safety is key! Bring a light source! While you're at it...bring some water and maybe a snack.
Once we get to the Wileo end, we'll re-group as needed and head back the same way. The moon vistas as we head back should be primo!
July is normally the month when the new antlers of buck deer push out of their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur. It was also often called the Full Thunder Moon (don't say this one out loud :) ), for the reason that thunderstorms are most frequent during this time. Another name for this month’s Moon was the Full Hay Moon. - from: Full Moon Calendar 2021: When Is The Next Full Moon? | Dates & Times (farmersalmanac.com)
p.s. we go rain or shine...we might not see the moon if it's raining, but we can test new rain gear options :P
