Adventures at mt. Lemmon

This is The Bushwhackers aka Small Bladders reporting!

All day yesterday we pretty much bushwhacked. That means going off trail and climbing through the terrain to find springs and collect data. We didn’t find a spring, but we did fall a lot and get a lot of splinters. We also took some quiet time to enjoy nature, which was very rewarding.

The third night some of us finally slept through the whole night (except for some people who stayed up super late playing mafia and just talking about life). Some of us also went on the sunrise hike at 5:30. It was super pretty.

This is our last day, and we’re both happy and sad to leave. We want to come back soon!
