ADIRONDACKS OVERNIGHT TRIP-- Giant Mountain
Looking for a mountainous escape this weekend? Join Clara, Sean, and Abby on our overnight in the Adirondacks! Departing Friday afternoon at 1:30pm from ADK, we'll set up camp on Friday night in preparation for our dope, Saturday summit of Giant Mountain, one of the highest peaks with breathtaking views of Keene Valley. Some experience preferred, good times and merrymaking required. Email achick@middlebury.edu<mailto:achick@middlebury.edu> (a chick? Yeah, it's Abby!) if you're interested.

ADIRONDACKS OVERNIGHT TRIP-- Algonquin Mountain
This Friday the 15th to Saturday the 16th,
Want to scale a mountain, challenge your limits and have a jolly old time doing it? Join Shaya, Nathan and Winston for a vigorous romp up Algonquin Peak, the undisputed queen of the 46ers. Being the second highest peak in the Adirondacks, the summit is pretty burly, so be sure you are physically comfortable with some gnarly elevation gain at a quickened pace. We will depart from Adirondack circle on the 15th at 12:30pm sharp, and will return on the 16th around 5:00pm. Email Shaya <lchristensen@middlebury.edu<mailto:lchristensen@middlebury.edu>> if you're interested!
