So true about a flashlight; even on a dayhike. Upon getting to the Elk Mtn trailhead Saturday night to do a night hike, SAR was just finishing up getting a family caught in the dark off the mtn...a family comprised of young kids! If they were counting on a full mooon to guide them back after sunset, OOPS....lunar eclipse! Got down to a good -5 that night, and they woulda been HOOPED if not for SAR.
