Legend has it John Muir, Beyonce, and Pope Francis all love potatoes. And sunsets. And funky hats. And the combination of potatoes, sunsets, funky hats. Thus it was born: The First Annual Potato Mountain Spud Crawl.


Join us for OTL's first major trip of the year! Hike up to the best sunset spot around, wear the weirdest hat you own, generally soak in the tuber-related joy of nature.

Here's the plan: We'll meet at the OEC at 4:45, quickly run into Frary when it opens at 5 to fill up greenboxes with dinner food. Vitals in hand, we'll mozy over to the trail head (10-15 minute drive from campus), then hike ~2.5 miles up to top of Potato Mountain. As the sun sinks low and golden in the sky, we'll be picnicking at the summit.

After sunset, we'll hike back down to the cars. Many scientists agree it gets dark after sunset, so PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BRING A LIGHT.

In addition, please bring water. And the funkiest clothes you own (especially hats).
