    Yes I do, I think it's 'cause you can't see as far into the distance as you would in the day.
    If you can see right to the top of a hill you tend to prepare for the thing and pace yourself.

    When you cant see to the top and only the area in the beam of light you just go.

    You bet. Aside from cooler weather, denser air and the inability to see quite as far, the lights reduce our ability to perceive slope... on the downside, ever notice how you can descend some things in the dark that sketch you, or seem "rougher", in the day?
