Take a Moonlight Hike at Red Rock State Park
September 19th, 2013
Take a guided moonlight hike in Sedona, Arizona this Thursday, September 19th, at Red Rock State Park! Sedona during the day is beautiful, Sedona by moonlight is Awesome! And after the hike you can look at the moon through telescopes on Visitor Center rooftop. Viewing courtesy Astronomers of Verde Valley.
This 2 1/2 hour naturalist-led interpretive moonlight hike is by far the most popular hike offered by Red Rock State Park. Enjoy the cooler temperatures of evening as you enjoy the sunset and moonrise from an overlook and return by the light of the moon. You will also have the chance to learn a great deal about Sedona and its surrounding areas. Information about Verde Valley and park history, as well as archeology, geology, botany, and the riparian wildlife area is offered.
The park recommends that you come through the gate approximately 30 minutes before starting time to insure your participation because no late arrivals can be allowed.
