Start: 12/08/2012 End:12/10/2012
Activity: Backpacking and Camping and Snowshoeing in Sequoia National Park
Difficulty: Strenuous- A difficult hike on the second day and we'll be camping in the snow. Be prepared to brave the weather!!
COME PLAY WITH US IN THE SNOW!! Meghan, Michele, and Joanna are heading to Sequoia National Park for some fun in the snow during stop days!
We will drive up to the park early Saturday morning. Upon arriving, we will set up camp at the South Fork Campgrounds, and head out for a little day hike. The next morning, we will wake up early to conquer ALTA PEAK! WITH SNOW SHOES!! It will be awesome, fun, amazing, fantastic, and BEAUTIFUL. Seriously. Look at the trip picture. THAT COULD BE YOU.
That night, we will eat a very delicious, much-deserved dinner back at camp. We will share stories, laugh about the good old days, and in general just have a great time procrastinating from studying for our finals.
The next morning, we will pack up camp and head out on another short day hike in the park. Then, we will hit the road and head back to USC (hopefully arriving some time around 4- details to be worked out as we get closer to the trip).
This trip will be AWESOME, AND if you go on it, you still have Friday night AND Monday night AND all day Tuesday to study for your finals. OHMYGOSH WHY WOULDN’T YOU COME ON THIS TRIP?! The answer is- you would! We can’t wait to see you there!!

Return: Back to USC around 4:00PM on Monday, December 10th.
Pre-Trip Meeting: Wednesday, December 5th. 9:00 in the VKC Arches!
