Photographers at all levels will find spectacular views and the option for shooting the “SUPER” Moon rising in the East. If the Eastern Sky is clouded, there is a special location for shooting the sun set. Moon rise is at 4:50PM; sunset is at 4:58PM.

Carpools will depart the Community and Cultural Center at 3:00PM. Meet there at 2:45PM if you want to be in or lead a carpool. We will arrive at the Ranger Station at 3:40PM, gather our gear, do a group photo, and hand out maps. The first 3/4 mile of trail is uphill, huff-puff. Take time to stop to catch your breath. The slant of the terrain enhances the low lighting. Find back-lit grasses on one side of trail and front-lit ones on opposite side to shoot.

The weather can be unpredictable and could get cold after sunset so dress accordingly. Sturdy walking / hiking boots or shoes are recommended. A head lamp or flashlight will be need since we will be returning after dark. There is a parking fee: $8 per car or $7 for those 62 or older.

Contact Susan Stillman to RSVP and arrange car pools, which will leave from the Community and Cultural Center at 3:00PM. Expect to be back to the center around 8PM. Susan will email you with additional information.
