Letter to the Editor: A Magical Night

The candlelight hike at Newport State Park this past Saturday was truly a “magical night.” 

People of all ages attended, and in particular, the number of children who hiked in the dark with their families was heartwarming. The candlelit trail wandered through beautiful woods and ended at the beach, where the park’s International Dark Sky status revealed the beauty of the stars and planets.

What a night to be out in nature and connect with the forest and the sky. People were happy and grateful to be part of the wonder of Door County.
