Get excited for sun and some ocean fun! On April 6th we will be going to Wellfleet, MA and walking the Cape Cod National Seashore’s Great Island Trail. It is about a 4.7 mile walk that starts with a nice stroll by the ocean the takes you through pine forests showing incredible views from the cliffs overlooking the Cape Cod Bay. We will be leaving from Marsh Plaza at 8AM and spending the day in Wellfleet, walking the trail and then ending it by finding an ice cream parlor obviously. We plan to be back around 6PM. Make sure to bring a bagged lunch, at least 1 L of water, money for ice cream, and we will be walking for a long period of time so dress accordingly for weather and comfort. This hike is for all levels of hiking experience.

Hey BUOCers!!! My name is Clark and I will be running a sunrise hike up Mount Carrigain in the White Mountains. We are hoping for some killer views weather permitting. The plan is to leave campus at probably 10PM on Friday in order to drive up, should be about a 3 hour drive. Once we get there we will rest for an hour an hour or two and start hiking by 2:30 am on Saturday. The hike is five miles each way. It will be in the dark and headlamps are a necessity. We do have them If needed. The hike defiantly requires you to have experience with moderate to challenging hikes as it will be in the dark and the mountain is 4,700 ft. As always remember to bring lots of water, layer up, remember your hiking boots, and bring snacks. Remember it is the end of October so it will be cold you can always take layers off.
