Mt. Tallac by the Full Moon

At 4:30 am, Sunday, September 30th, I met up with my friends Travis and Marissa to hike Mt. Tallac via the full moon. It was reminiscent of ski season, when I often meet friends at 5 am to ski before the work day begins. As we set out on the trail, we rarely needed our headlamps; the light of the moon was enough to illuminate our way.

We neared the summit just as the sun was rising over the mountains east of Lake Tahoe.
