Hikes, Snow, and Lots S'more!
What's the best way to spend a Sunday afternoon at Dartmouth?
~besides getting all your work done in the library~
...going on a hike!
After a fun and eventful homecoming weekend my friend Talia and I decided to go on a hike with Cabin and Trail, a sub club of the Dartmouth Outing Club (DOC). We chose the s'mores sunsike up Wright Mountain. Wright is 30 minutes north of Hanover in a small town called Bradford, Vermont. Though we missed the actual sunset since we got started a little late, it still ended up being a ton of fun. Why?
SNOW! Like real, actual snow. Snow that got thicker as we got closer to the summit view. I definitely wasn't prepared for this and was wearing the wrong shoes so my feet got really cold and wet really quickly. Yikes.
(Disclaimer: I know that this winter is going to be rough. Yes I'm scared. Please don't make fun of me I'm just trying to survive the weather here.)
Once we got the top it was pitch dark. All we could see were tiny lights of residences along the mountains ahead of us. It was really beautiful.
Then it was time for the best part. S'mores!
Once we got the fire started and broke out the goods, we started roasting.
Though we didn't get to see the sunset we planned to see, all in all it was a fabulous, chill, and relaxing hike. It was a great time to wind down, enjoy the beauty of the Upper Valley (and of the s'mores, lol), and relax. 10/10. Highly recommend.

Not only has Dartmouth Dining Services been trying their best to make the food good, they've been trying their hand at all sorts of different kinds of food—things I never thought I would see in Hanover, much less Hanover during a lockdown.
Hanover may be in a rural location, but we are far from isolated. In the summer of 2019, my close friends were able to shake hands with President Joe Biden and take selfies with Vice President Kamala Harris.
