The Scottsdale Republic’s article this morning about moonlight hikes in the Metro Phoenix area completely ignores night hiking activities in Scottsdale. However, it’s worth a look for the great Rob Schumacher photo of moonrise through the saguaros.
Our Scottsdale’s McDowell Sonoran Preserve is mostly closed to hikers at night, but you can participate in a guided night hike to Grandview in Pinnacle Peak Park on selected full-moon dates listed on the city’s website. Tomorrow, Friday 28 December is the first on the list.
Check out “Astronomy Evenings,” too!
