Camp Bayou closed Oct 22; Oct 23 night hike cancelled

UPDATE Friday, October 23:
The Waxing Moon night hike scheduled for Friday, Oct 23 has been cancelled due to still smoldering hot spots. Better safe than sorry. Please check back for future night hikes within the next few months.

Camp Bayou will be closed today, Thursday, October 22, due to a prescribed burn in progress. We will be open tomorrow, Friday, October 23 from 9am-2pm as usual unless there are any unforeseen complications.
Tomorrow night's Waxing Moon Hike may be cancelled depending on how the burn goes today. Some factors to consider based on experience from previous burns:
- smoke/particulates in the air may pose problems for anyone with respiratory issues.
- fire smoldering may cause concern for new flare-ups- not something you want to worry about in the dark.
- lingering smoke will cause the stars to be obscured which will prevent seeing Cygnus, part of the Great World Wide Star Count activity.
