Hiking at night

One of the park Rangers (Amy) held a “moonlight walk” to show that you did not need daylight, or flashlights, to hike.  So we did a 2 1/2 mile loop (Desert Voices) just to experience this.  It was interesting to see the different plants that open at night, the different animals, and the different birds (we also saw bats).  Unfortunately, it was cloudy and we finished the night in serious dark conditions.

Don’t think I’ll give up my day hikes, but it was fun, and educational.
