Eastern Sierra Shenanigans

*How has it already been half a quarter?? I have been behind on almost everything social media related (not a bad thing) including this blog. To be honest, I’m not feeling as inspired to write about myself and my ‘journey’ as I was this summer, so I debated not putting any more personal stories or trips online.

But then I went on a field study last weekend with some of my greatest gal pals. Although I don’t have anything poetic or wise to say, I think the pictures are worth sharing!*

I have a very strong feeling that I have gamed the college system. I could name a lot of examples, but today I am specifically referring to Earth 18, a major requirement 1 unit class, which is essentially a four camping trip.

This year we were in the Eastern Sierras and, surprise, it was amazing. I’ve been lucky enough to make some really quality friendships within the earth science department, and this trip some of my non-earth science friends caught on.

It was four days without a shower and almost perfect weather conditions. On top of everything, we were at the peak of a meteor shower, and the stars almost seemed like they were falling out of the sky.

If you don’t know what you’re doing with your college life, check out your earth science department and get yourself on a camping trip.
