Moab: Guided Full Moon Hike

1. Moab: Guided Full Moon Hike

On this full moon hike, admire the landscape and unique rock formations, illuminated by the glow of the moon. Gaze up to the sky as your guide points out satellites, planets, and constellations. When the full moon comes around each month, it provides enough light to read a newspaper near midnight. The canyons and arches take on a mysterious white glow as the landscape is illuminated in a different way. This easy to moderate hike provides a great opportunity to admire the stars. As you look up at the night sky, your guide, with the help of a laser pointer, will show you the different satellites, planets, and constellations that can be seen at this time.

The full moon hike was a wonderful and unique experience. Our guide, Travis was awesome-knowledgeable, patient and great with my kids barrage of questions. The hike itself was beautiful, a much different pace from the more crowded morning hikes in the area.

Tyler was awesome. We had a good group and a great time.
