New-Moon Night Walk
Penasquitos Canyon is a mysterious and wonderful place at night. We start at dusk and walk out into the canyon as night falls, hoping to encounter deer, owls, bats, sometimes snakes, scorpions, and various beetles.
We look for fragrant night-blooming plants; we listen to the quiet of the nature. There are spider webs to admire; and above, the stars, planets, and the constellations invite contemplation.
Meet at 4206 Sorrento Valley Boulevard. Info: 858-484-3219.
