Moonlit Trails I didn’t take my headlamp tonight. The moon is waxing gibbous right now, so there was usually plenty of light. I was also pleased that I didn’t encounter any people tonight at all. On weeknights, I run into all kinds of people enjoying the trails at night. Possibly, they are drinking on weekends. While they were drinking, I was running. I encountered no coyotes tonight. But I did encounter a huge owl. It flew just a couple of feet from my head just like a jackass. But he wasn’t a jackass. He was a huge owl. (As an update, it turns out that I didn’t encounter any owls at Pt. Sal last night. They were poorwills. I’ve never met a poorwill before.) Everything was feeling great, and it was a perfect night to run.
