• Stargaze or watch one of the meteor showers. Orionids: October 20 & 21 – Crescent moon rises during peak. It may me tough to view the small meteors. Leonids: November 16 & 17 – In view during peak hours. These are perfect conditions to watch the meteor shower. Also, this meteor shower only occurs once every 33 years!
What to Pack:
• Food & water
• Hiking shoes
• Outdoor gear
• Layered clothing, including a coat. The weather can go from hot, to cold very quickly.
• Umbrella or raincoat. Unlikely to be needed but bring and leave in the car, just once case.
• If you plan on star or meteor gazing, be sure to bring a comfortable chair, a blanket, bug spray & a red filtered flashlight for reading maps and chats without ruining your night vision.
Remember to LEAVE NO TRACE! Take nothing but photos and leave nothing but footprints.
