Full Moon Sunset Nature Hike
Name: Full Moon Sunset Nature Hike
Date: September 9, 2022
Time: 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM PDT
On Friday evening, September 9, from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m., I’ll lead a Full Moon Sunset Nature Hike above the Ojai Valley where we can watch the simultaneous sunset and moonrise. We’ll meet at the trailhead at 5:45 p.m. for a 6:00 p.m. start. We’ll gradually hike about 1.5 miles to a vista point, experiencing some elevation gain on a well-worn, dirt fire road with uneven footing in places. Along the way we’ll stop to meet some valuable edible and medicinal plants, possibly including: California Buckwheat Black & Purple Sage Toyon Hollyleaf Cherry Prickly-Pear and, hopefully, the fragrant night-blooming Brickellbush. After witnessing the sunset and moonrise, we’ll walk back to the trailhead by remaining daylight, moonlight, and flashlight, returning to the trailhead by 8:30 p.m. I will have copies of my new book, Medicinal Herbs of California, with me for sale and signing before and after the hike. Heavy rain or chance of thunderstorms will cancel the hike. No dogs or smoking, please. Please register at HerbWalks.com.
