After the girls went bed my brother and I hiked out here from Camp Doris under a full moon close to midnight. The moon was so bright we didn't need to use our flashlights even through the woods. Now I plan my backpacking trips around the full moon whenever possible.

This is a wonderful location, day or night, and as Parkermen said, Well worth the hike.
