SUNRISE CLIMB!!!!

Grace Gray

I don’t know about you, but I think my two weeks of solitude have showed me life’s true values: laughing with a real live human, bathing ourselves in the sun’s first rays, and moving through the air in a vertical motion.

Sun body loves you <3 (post shutdown version)

Eliza Stowe

Let’s try this again!!!!

Mind, body and a rope between trees

Here’s an excuse to slack off

Eliza Stowe

What better way to slack off of our dear Zoom university than near some trees, at sunset and with some good company? None. School is hard, being outside makes us happy, so let’s go slacklining.
