For centuries, the night sky has stoked the human imagination. Explore Indiana Dunes National Park for a guided hike under the glow of a full moon. Under star light, even familiar features and trails become new again. We'll share skills to navigate through the darkness of seldom traveled trails and discover peace and quiet less than an hour from Chicago. We will watch the stars disappear as the moon bathes the park with its glow and reveals details previously unseen. Illuminated by moonlight, we will hike to our journey's end where we will learn about the stories written in the night sky and share a few of our own as we warm ourselves by a bonfire with hot drinks and warm company. You bring the hiking boots and we'll bring headlamps.
