On Thursday evening, September 28, from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m., my wife Rondia and I will lead a Full Moon Sunset Nature Hike above the Ojai Valley where we can watch the simultaneous sunset and moonrise. Technically, the moon will reach complete fullness at 2:57 a.m. on Friday morning, making Thursday night the ideal time to view the full moon without staying out too late.

We’ll meet at the trailhead at 4:45 p.m. for a 5:00 p.m. start, then gradually hike about 1.5 miles to the vista point, experiencing some elevation gain on a well-worn, dirt fire road with uneven footing in places. Along the way we’ll stop to meet some valuable edible and medicinal plants, possibly including:

California Buckwheat
Black & Purple Sage
Toyon
Yucca
Prickly-Pear
and, hopefully, the fragrant night-blooming Brickellbush.

After witnessing the sunset and moonrise, we’ll walk back to the trailhead by remaining daylight, moonlight, and flashlight, returning to the trailhead by 7:30 p.m.

I will have copies of my book, Medicinal Herbs of Californiawith me for sale and signing before and after the hike.

Heavy rain or chance of thunderstorms will cancel the hike. No dogs or smoking, please.
