As usual, this is not a Sierra Club outing. You may join up, leave, participate at your will on the scheduled evening. Please continue reading for the details.

Night is Calling (Photo Quest August)

Shipwreck Tufa under Stars, South Tufa, Mono Lake, California, September 2016

Depending on where in San Diego you are, your days are either warm, hot, or torrid right now – but the nights are nice when temperatures drop, the skies are mostly clear, the coyotes are singing, the stars are out, and the Milky Way is beautifully visible in all of its glory in summer.

The August theme for our photo quest is Night is Calling – so let’s get out into the night!
