arches np,moab, and meteor shower trifecta hike - December 11, 2015
The WMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the WMC Liability Waiver, online registration is required for all in person WMC events.Get ready for a fabulous adventure on the weekend of December 11,12, and 13 2015. These are the dates of the Geminids' meteor shower which is considered to be the strongest shower of the year with sometimes over one hundred meteors an hour. The meteors are often bright and intensely colored. We are blessed this year with no moon illumination to cause interference. Temperatures at the park during December are typically 23-45 degrees and .44 inch of precipitation is typical in December. During the day we will do hikes that are in accord with the winter conditions. In the evening we will enjoy everything that Moab has to offer and at night we can be treated to a spectacular celestial event. Motel rates are very reasonable at this time and the crowds have yet to arrive.
