We will meet at 10:30 pm at the Graham Visitor's Center at 2300 Arboretum Drive East, Seattle WA.  There is a medium size parking lot there.  I will be at the front door of the Visitors's Center to meet people.  Please have your equipment ready to go so we can leave on our walk no later than 10:45 pm.

You can bring any type of camera gear, but it should be light enough to carry on a short hike.  Some of the trails could be wet or muddy, so wear appropriate footwear.
