We had just done Yankee Hill at night, and we attempted to watch the Perseid meteor shower from the top. It was too cloudy, though, and the full moon meant it was pretty bright. We still had a good time, and we took Cumberland Gulch out.
We had marked the trailhead incorrectly so we were looking in the wrong place at first, but Bill set us straight and we were soon headed down. In the dark, it wasn't as enjoyable because we couldn't see the scenery. Still, it was nice and steep and we enjoyed the trip down.
It wasn't long at all before we were all at the bottom. We aired up right next to Fall River Road, then we headed into town. We all got home at about 5:30AM, tired and a little chilled. Still, it was a blast and we all had fun. Next year there isn't a full moon, so we'll be ready to enjoy a better show. We're looking forward to it already.
