As reported previously, eighteen UEPers made the trek up to the White Mountains last month for some hiking, camping and chili eating. We got so many great photos out of it that we felt the need to share them!
Some nice passersby offered to take this photo of the whole group.
After a quick lunch, half of the group took it easy while the more adventurous half continued on to the summit of Cannon Mountain (almost).
The general consensus was that it was too cold to go for a swim
We encountered this living birch tree which had been mostly uprooted. Despite the appearance of a shelter, we decided this was not a good solution to addressing housing shortages.
International student from Beijing, Yu “Frank” Xiang wrote about his experience at the Loj:
“On Saturday 11/7 and Sunday 11/8, I had experienced an unforgettable time with some fellows form UEP. We went to the White Mountains for hiking, and then stayed at the famous Tufts-owned Loj for a wonderful night. To me, it was a really exciting trip, and a good opportunity to immerse myself into the American students’ daily life. For example, we could share interesting things during the hiking, play games and exchange foods during the lunch break, and make a big dinner together at Loj. It was so interesting to hear other’s story and ideas, and to look at the funny items in the Loj, particularly the magnets on the refrigerator. Generally, I liked the Loj trip very much, and hope more international students could join it next year!”
