I love hiking at night. This is less than a mile from my house, but once you leave the pavement you get to know the night. Even though I’m in the middle of the OC I’m surrounded by creatures. Did you know that coyotes have green eyes? They do because I’ve had them pass me in the night, within a few feet, and my headlight blazes on their green beams. Typically I will see raccoons, possum, night hawks, mice, coyotes and lots of spiders. The landscape glows around me, planes take off with busy people doing busy things and all I’m left with is the sound of my feet on the powdery Earth as I rise and fall through the cold shadows and warm highlights.
PS: My wife shot this and if I don’t give her credit she will make my life a living Hell.
