Although this past getaway was the last of our fall getaways, it definitely did not fall short in excitement and adventure! Over 80 sophomores and juniors left the UT campus to trek the wild, i.e. Enchanted Rock. Of course, we had to start the weekend right with some piping hot ramen and a game of human bingo! As the night ended, there was definitely a lot of anticipation for the next day as it was finally our turn to hike up Enchanted Rock! As everyone finally reached the top, we had a memorable time of fellowship as we sang campfire songs, prayed for each other, and absorbed God’s beautiful creation. We finished the night with making creative music videos, eating a hearty dinner, and some friendly competition between the girls and the guys! Although the whole weekend was a whirlwind, it was awesome to just get away from our daily grind and share in some fun fellowship! Here are some pictures from our getaway:
