Prologue:
That title is a Beatles reference for all you whippersnappers. This is my ninth Q of the 2020 Q Challenge. It’s been quite a while since I posted North Hills. Between wondering how dark it would be and whether I’d mess with Sisyphus, I managed to leave my headlamp at home. Plenty of PAX were equipped so we were good to go.

Naked Moleskin:
It was a thrill and an honor to have the 2020 Q Challenge Godfather himself, Cotton, in attendance for Challenge Q #9! What a great idea.
I had forgotten how dark NH can be, thankful for the regulars with headlamps.
It’s always interesting when random cars pop into the parks when we are working out. They left pretty quickly, maybe once they noticed the headlamp Pink Floyd show we had going in the shelter.
The Challenge has been great for getting me out to new AOs and revisiting ones I hadn’t posted in a while. I hope to be back to NH soon.
This was my ninth #F3Q20 #2020Challenge Q. Next stop is The Blitz on 10/14.
