Astrophotographer Embraces the Night Sky In National Parks

These national park night views will blow your mind! It’s amazing what you see during the night versus the day time.

If your hike ever extended into the evening, whether by poor planning, odds are you’ll know that it’s completely different from hiking during the day. Everything from the sky, the sounds and the environment is different.

This is where some people go on a hidden adventure and spot out some of the most amazing places in America. What seems like dirt roads leading nowhere often turn out to be some of treasure at the end of the tunnel.

Caution Going Night Hiking

It’s not for everyone, but going night hiking can be extremely exciting. However, your trip can be ruined if you’re not fully prepared so keep in mind and be safe by taking the following precautions:

  • Going in a Group – You’re safer in numbers because you never know what animal is hungry.
  • Lighting – Bring plenty of flashlights and torches with extra batteries to see where you’re going
  • Weather – Make sure you check the weather before you go night hiking to avoid any adverse weather such as rain or winds.
  • Adequate water and food – You’ll be hungry and you’ll want to stay hydrated.
  • Familiar Trails – Know your trail before you go as signs will not be visible.
