Spooky Night Hike!

We returned from our trip, Spooky Night Hike!, on Friday, October 21 2016.

Warmish weather for this time of year, a surplus of hot chocolate, and some seriously spooky stories combined to make this trip a lot of fun. It's awfully fun when the kids go totally silent in suspense during the story telling, and then pretend they weren't scared as we talk on the way back to the trailhead. Thanks to Grant and Michael for the spooky stories. Drew, Carmen, and Guy shuttled our lucky group of thirteen. And thanks to Carmen and Hana for snagging the munchies. 

Trip departure and return dates and time: 
Friday, October 21 2016 5:30 PM to 11:00 PM
Trip Description: 

This ever-popular outing is magic. Spooky stories told in an creepy cabin in the Indian Peaks Wilderness make this outing worth staying up late. Hot chocolate and snacks keep us fueled and warm even when there's already snow on the ground.
