What we're about

Are you new in town? Looking to socialize? Want to make new friends or new travel mates? This group will fulfill your desire for new friends and more. There are so many people in Los Angeles and socializing with new friends should not be something we hope for but something we can do was as we wish! :)

Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks - Memorial Day Weekend [NFNA]

Have you ever been to Zion or Bryce Canyon? If you have, you probably recall how marvelous they are. If you never been, it is time for a visit! (This is by far my favorite National Park and I been to many of them!!!!). We last visited Zion in 2012, 2015, and 2018 and are going back in 2019. We are staying at a beautiful home that can sleep many of us comfortably! :) What is so awesome about staying at a house? We will have all the amenities of a home (bathroom with shower and flushing toilet, bed to sleep on, towels etc) and but still sit by the campfire all night!!! We can enjoy the fire-pit, hot-tub, and an amazing view (ton of stars in the sky!!!!). This would be one of those trips you can write home about. I am excited just thinking about being in Zion National Park and the house makes it that much more awesome!!! You don't have to worry about packing for dinner. With the money we put together, I will buy food and with some of your help, we can have delicious dinners together! :) I would definitely bring 🍺 and more to share! It's always a good time!!!! :) For breakfast, I will pick up oatmeal and pastries for us. I will also bring coffee and tea. :) For Lunch, I normally just buy a sandwich at the store, throw it in my bag and head out on my hikes. Bring your hydration system and let's do some amazing hikes! For those that want to head over to Bryce Canyon National Park (http://www.nps.gov/brca/index.htm)for a day, it is completely worth it too! :) It's just a little over an hour away and you'll get to see the hoodoos! Don't know what a hoodoo is? Then you must get over to Bryce. :) We have the house from Friday May 24 until Monday May 27 (Memorial Day). Like last time I plan to depart LA on Thursday night and stay in Las Vegas for the evening. Zion is 6-7 hours from Downtown LA, so if you want to leave Friday that is fine too! To help cover the cost of the trip, the cost is $275 per person. There is only enough room for 34 people (17 guys and 17 ladies). Please also do take into consideration the $30 per car national park entrance fee (good for 7 days). This can be split between the people you carpool with. Lastly, of course, there is the cost of splitting gas with the driver. If you are ready to see some of the most magnificent national parks, join me for a trip to Zion National Park (Bryce Canyon National Park and Kanab (http://www.tripadvisor.com/Tourism-g57030-Kanab_Utah-Vacations.html)if time allows). Getting there: I will help coordinate carpool for the confirmed attendees. This trip is posted on many Meetup groups. I am centralizing everyone going into one group. If you want to go you must RSVP on my main group. Spots go to first paid, regardless of when you RSVP. This trip will fill up quickly so if you want to go lock in your spot with a payment. Here is a link to my main Meetup with more details and payment instructions: http://bit.ly/ZionMeetup
