2018 Fall Trip – Knoxville
This year we went to Knoxville for the bi-annual SPS trip. While originally we had planned to visit Oak Ridge National Labs, circumstances out of our control kept us from doing so, but that did not stop us from having fun! We went hiking through a stream in the nearby Great Smokey Mountains National Park. A few of us also ended up hitchhiking a few miles up the park road after collecting some overexcited members that had gone the wrong way! The fields were beautiful and the fresh air was good for us to recuperate from our hard work during classes. We also explored the city of Knoxville. There were many cute bookstores, thrift stores, and eerie (but delicious) ice cream shoppes. On the ride to and from our destination, different groups took side adventures to the Knoxville Art Museum, a water filled quarry, a flea market, and MANY trips to Starbucks.
