This second part will be a night series. I had to remove the day/night mod, everything was too dark and it was hard to see the campsites.
We will start off with the community at night.
The Lucinda falls at night is a tourist hotspot. Residents have complained about people parking along their streets and making a lot of noise. The parks dept. has proposed to buy the houses along the street and then constructing a park with a lookout platform so tourists can safely view the falls.
The Navy pier at night.
The campgrounds span across the rim of the crater and down the mountainside. The main campsite lies along the banks of Lake Arapi, with ranger island in the middle. The park rangers meet and train as well as camp on this island.
The hydroelectric complex is illuminated at night and is visible from almost any spot in the town. Access hatches run down the mountain to provide access to the conduit tunnels that house the transmission lines underground.
This is 1 of the trail heads at night. There are 3 trail heads, with plans to construct parking garages.
Each trail head provides commerce and jobs to the area. Most park rangers live in these small communities along the road. The trails are wide enough for the heavy duty fire trucks housed at the small fire stations around the mountain.
Another trail head, with a small school nearby.
The village center at night.
The village has it's own resort hotel now.
Mencia Island is illuminated at night and is a popular place for joggers. There are plans to construct a parking garage and some kind of trail system to keep joggers off the road. Extending the island to provide land for a recreational area is being considered.
Camp Shasta at night.
Boyscout Island at night with campers sitting around the bonfire. Now onto Mt. Arapi Provincial Park and it's campgrounds.
2 of the 3 trails are visible here.
There's a big campsite at the top of the mountain here.
Finding a campsite here is easy as long as you get 1 before the sun starts going down.
This is another big campsite with showers and a ranger station that is hidden by a big tree in this shot.
This is the highest point of the mountain. Lookout platforms were built along the trails. They not only provide views for tourists, they give rangers a clear view of the mountain side to spot forest fires.
Another big campsite along the trail.
No seats were available around this bonfire tonight.
The main campground and Ranger Island.
Seems all campsites are occupied this night.
This is looking west. The ranger station that was hidden by a tree a few shots ago is visible here. The bonfire pit here is crowded tonight.
The trails wind up the mountain along cliffs. The parks dept. wants to build the same style lookout platform at Lucinda Falls.
Another trail head.
Some of the cliffs are too steep for trees to grow on.
A close-up of 1 of the big campsites.
The pools are closed at night and the thermal ponds never close.
The trails are popular even at night.
Even the lookout platforms are popular at night.
There are shower buildings along the trails as well as bathrooms and porta-potties.
I wish sims would not leave their campfires lit while they meander over to the lookout platforms.

Camp Arapi at night.
A close-up of Ranger Island.
A closer look at a corner of Camp Arapi.
The trail down the inside of the crater don't have campsites due to the steepness of the terrain.
A close-up of the last shot looking west.
That is it for this entry. The highway corridor is finished and plans for expansion are underway. Thank you and I hope you have enjoyed. Do Svidaniya.
