Grab your friends, tents, and telescopes for our third annual Atheist Adventure camping trip!
Atheists United has chosen the iconic Zion National Park for its 2023 Atheist Adventure and Stargazing Party.
Zion National Park is one of the crown jewels of the U.S. National Park Service system. It is known worldwide as a geologic wonderland of towering cliffs, deep narrow canyons, and sweeping expanses of bare sandstone slickrock. Its focal point is Zion Canyon, a steep-walled gorge carved through hundreds of meters of early Jurassic-era Navajo sandstone by the North Fork of the Virgin River.
Due to its location near the junction of three great geographic provinces of the American West, the Park protects a remarkable diversity of plant and animal species inhabiting several different life zones. It also preserves evidence of nearly 8,000 years of human habitation, including the Mormon settlers of the mid-nineteenth century who gave the area its name, used in their religion to connote an association of the righteous.
Today, as one of the “Big Five” national parks in southern Utah, Zion is famous for its many hiking trails and activities, including camping, horseback riding, nature walks, and rock climbing. On top of all that, the dark night skies attract visitors from around the world because of the park’s International Dark Sky Park status.

The Great Los Angeles Walk takes place every year the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Walk across the city of Los Angeles. See the city from a new perspective. Meet fellow walkers along the way. This is NOT a race or competition. Walk at your own pace and stop when and where you like.
The journey itself is its own point.
From the event blogspot:
Hundreds of Angelenos will hit the sidewalks once again on Saturday, November 18, for The Great Los Angeles Walk 2022 – the annual event that dispels the myth that “nobody walks in L.A.”
Attendees will be encouraged to explore the city in a safe way, and follow proper safety protocols. From there, they should explore the city, document what they see and share that experience with others. It’s not a race – attendees are encourage to take their time, explore, learn about their city and even build community with others. The Walk will end with a celebration at a venue to be announced later.
L.A. journalist and blogger Michael Schneider launched the Great Los Angeles Walk in 2006 as a way to celebrate his tenth year in Los Angeles. Inspired by the book “Wilshire Boulevard: Grand Concourse of Los Angeles,” by Kevin Roderick (with research by J. Eric Lynxwiler), he decided to walk the street’s entire length.
Social media users can follow along all day on the walk's official Twitter feed, @greatlawalk, as we continually post our location.
