Perigee: Smuggler's Notch Full Moon Hike
A clear crisp night was perfect for the full moon outing in Smugglers Notch on Saturday, March 19th. Nineteen people, many wearing snowshoes, others on foot, walked the well-trodden trail to the top of the notch. Light reflected off the icy cliffs from the perigee moon, moonlight as close and bright as it had been in almost twenty years.
