Special Full Moon Program set for Thursday, Oct. 5

By Nadia Werby
Special to The SUN
We have one last event at Chimney Rock — the Full Moon Program on Oct. 5. Chimney Rock will not be open as of Sept. 30, so this is a special after-season full moon.
At this program, volunteers light the trail to the mesa top before the twin spires. A speaker tells the story of the people and their likely relationship with the moon, sun and stars. Watch the full moon rise over the eastern mountain peaks to the music of a Native American flute. You’ll be torn between looking west to see the spectacular sunset or focusing on the eastern mountain range to see the first sliver of moon.
This is a reservations-only program and is recommended for children age 8 and up. The program starts at 5:15 p.m. Tickets are $15 and are considered a nonrefundable donation.
Early tour full moon package
This combination package begins at the upper parking lot with a one-hour guided tour of the one-third-mile paved Great Kiva Trail loop at 4:30 p.m.
