SPRING TRIPS!

SKYLIGHT POND OVERNIGHT with JENNY, SEAN, and MAYA
Friday May 3rd to Saturday May 4th
We will depart Friday after lunch at 1:00 and head into the Green Mountains! Get jazzed to hike the beautiful Skylight Pond Trail and summit Bread Loaf Mountain before we stay the night at Skyline Lodge, complete with sick views of the surrounding valley! Saturday morning we have the option of a second summit before returning to campus early-ish on Saturday afternoon. The hike will be pretty moderate and is perfect for all levels of experience! Email Jenny at jmoffett@middlebury.edu<mailto:jmoffett@middlebury.edu><mailto:jmoffett@middlebury.edu<mailto:jmoffett@middlebury.edu>> to sign up.

ADIRONDACK OVERNIGHT WITH MARA AND ABBY - WILDERNESS WOMEN THEME
Friday May 3rd to Saturday May 4th
Do you like Elizabeth Warren, Naomi Wolf, or Bjork?! Do you love strong women?! Join Mara and Abby for an overnight hike in the Adirondacks and celebrate the awesomeness of women in the most awesome setting there is- the wilderness! You need not have an xx chromosome nor any previous outdoor experience to apply, just a hardy appreciation for girlz. The trip will leave from ADK at 3pm on Friday 5/3 and we will be back in time for dinner on Saturday 5/4. Space is limited, so sign up quickly by emailing achick@middlebury.edu. Side note: participants get bonus points for coming dressed as Bjork. www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBmMU_iwe6U<http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBmMU_iwe6U><http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBmMU_iwe6U>
