Mountain Trail at Sunrise
We actually hike at night. With flashlights and headlamps, it is not that uncommon that we will find ourselves hiking at night. In the low deserts around the Salt River Valley in Arizona, we would hike at night to avoid the intense heat of the desert. In the mountains, we hike at night to avoid the same intense sunlight and heat of the high mountains. Hiking at night has its rewards, we get to see both the sunset and sunrise. My latest night-time hike was the climb up Mount Timpanogos. I am sure I will have additional opportunities to hike in the dark in the future.
