When you read "adult night hike" it sounds dirty, doesn't it? Like you're looking for love on Nebraska Avenue, maybe? Well, it is... sort of. Boyd Hill rangers offer a grownups-only night hike, which means they can tell stories they normally wouldn't, like how scorpions have sex. Here's a hint: it involves bouncing and him putting his stinger near her head. None of this is a euphemism, although I desperately wish it were. Arachnid porn aside, this hike offers adults the chance to get up-close and personal with the critters on the night hike, which can include owls, alligators (OK, so you don't get close to them, because really, why would you?), scorpions (aside from the kinky sex, they glow in the dark), spiders and other nocturnal delights. That's a treat, because anyone who has gone on a night hike knows this things are so popular with families, the kids kind of take over. For one night only, the adults get to take the night hike back.
