Garrett Trails Moonlight Hike

As a friend of Garrett Trails I sometimes lead hikes on some of Garrett Counties amazing trails. The last one was along the Eastern Continental Divide on the Meadow Mountain Trail. It was the harvest moon and a perfect night for a hike. Even though the leaves were still on the trees the moon was bright enough to hike with just the eyes.

I was fortunate in that my guests were avid star watchers. Not only was the company great I learned many things about the night sky. We were able to identify several planets and really check out the surface of the moon.

To top it off I also learned some great new tricks for photographing things at night.
