choose your own adventure in beautiful bishop california! we're heading up saturday morning and coming back tuesday with a whole lot of shenanigans in between. we'll likely hit sequoia/kings canyon national parks for some dumb nice hikes, views, hit mammoth hot springs, and check out the precious town of bishop -- the 5cs has never seen a destress event like this one. bring stuff to do art if that's your thing - luke will be doing photography stuff but anything/nothing is encouraged!

we'll be car camping every night and choosing our hikes depending on the skill level of the group and may split up for different day trips - so this trip is BEGINNER FRIENDLY. if you've never camped before, are a promotive pro or anywhere in between, this trip is for you! 

any gear you don't have can be checked out at the OEC in dialynas hall at pomona all week (9/15-9/20) or you can email sarah and she'll hook you up! if you have a car, also email sarah, and you'll be automatically confirmed! wooohooo

I understand that as a Participant in the Activity I could sustain serious personal injuries, illness, property damage, or even death as a consequence of not only Pomona's actions or inactions, but also the actions, inactions, negligence or fault of others, and that there may be other risks not known to me or not reasonably foreseeable at this time. I further understand and agree that any injury, illness, property damage, disability, or death that I may sustain by any means is my sole responsibility, except for those occurrences due to Pomona's gross negligence or intentional misconduct.
