Full moon hike at night. We'll hike the beach and the bluff overlooking the lagoon, in the dead of night, and enjoy the night sky, stars, and solitude, with moonlit views of the beach, ocean and the Olympic mountains. After the hike, we will drink moonshine together (which will be provided).

Moon-rise is at 11:14 PM. We'll leave Seattle around 11:15 PM, to catch the midnight ferry at Mukilteo, and return via Deception Pass Bridge. We'll organize into a single carpool/caravan, leaving, traveling, and returning together for everyone's safety.

Cloudy skies will cancel the hike - and if that happens, we'll try again during August's full moon.
