Monthly Night Hike V

A fantastic time was had by all!  Can’t wait for next month!

Clear skies tonight over the north shore mountains and a full moon this week. Sounds like it's time for our monthly night hike!

The moon keeping an eye on us as we hike up the mountain to the Upper Warming Hut on Hollyburn.

Time to bust out the hot chocolate & the crazy carpets! Sorry for the blurry photo. The night skiing lights of Grouse Mountain are visible on the left & some of the city lights far below us are visible on the right.

Okay, does anyone have any tips on how best to ride one of these suckers?

And you wonder why they call these things "crazy carpets".

Okay, I see that this is going to end badly.

Monthly Night Hike IV

A full moon and a clear night sky. Another perfect day in paradise!

Don't pick a fight with our guys! They're trained trek pole duellists!

Another spectacular full moon and clear night sky over Cypress Provincial Park!

We headed up the Hollyburn Mountain trail and then veered over to the Upper Warming Hut for some hot chocolate.

Once it was time for home, the boys pulled their troop-issued crazy carpets out of their backpacks and rode them down the mountain trails all the way to the parking lot.

Good clean fun!

BTW…the horizontal string of lights in the background are the night skiing lights of Grouse Mtn. (4,039 ft) approximately 5 km away across the Capilano watershed and the valley containing Capilano Lake.
