Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks - Memorial Day Weekend [MP]
Trip is full. Join us rafting https://www.meetup.com/mixprofessionals/events/243098068/ Join us in Sequoia National Park https://www.meetup.com/mixprofessionals/events/243301909/ Or on a weekend cruise! https://www.meetup.com/mixprofessionals/events/248898427/ Have you ever been to Zion? If you have, you probably recall how marvelous Zion NP is. 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 and 2015 (https://www.meetup.com/mixprofessionals/events/221387351/ and https://www.meetup.com/mixprofessionals/events/56294662/) 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. :) Here are some photos from Bryce when we went in 2012: We have the house from Friday May 25 until Monday May 28 (Memorial Day). Like last time I plan to depart LA on Thursday night and stay in Las Vegas for the evening. I will drive through (and stop and hang out) Zion National Park on 5/25 for a few hours. :) Then, off to the house I go! :) 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 $265 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.

You will not hold myself or the meetup group liable for injuries or anything else, such as injury due to carpooling, etc. By signing up, you agree to this Waiver (https://www.meetup.com/mixprofessionals/pages/12713372/Camping_Waiver_of_Liability/).

The organizers will coordinate carpool for confirmed attendees based on where people are leaving from, when they can leave and whether or not they can drive. Departure times are determined by drivers. Expect to hear more about 1 week prior to the trip. 3. What if I don't know anyone else going - is it weird to go by myself? Not at all! Most people come by themselves to these events and have a blast and end up with a new social circle of friends!

What we're about

If you are looking for fun social events, new adventures or are new in town and are looking to form new relationships with the great people on Meetup, you have found the right group!!!! We are a group of active professionals seeking adventures beyond the daily grind, building new friendships through social networking, and/or looking to meet that special someone along the way. First and foremost though, our focus is building a circle of friends and making connections!

If you are new to LA or have been here your whole life and your social circle diminished over time, this is the place to expand your social circle again. We have fun activities and social events that make making friends as easy as 1-2-3! :)

Of course, if you are single and are looking to find that special someone, what better way is there than through fun activities where you can learn about each other without the pressure of the uncomfortable first date? Our events are low pressure and low stress. It's like hanging out with old friends.

Now, what else should you know about this group? If you are adventurous and love the outdoors, you are in luck. We absolutely love hiking and camping in the summer and snowboarding in the winter. No worries though if you are more into the cultural events and museums that Los Angeles has to offer. We enjoy broadening our minds with arts and culture. LA is one of the most dynamic cities with more cultural diversity than most. We will explore LA and all its glory!

What if you enjoy the occasional socializing over a drink at a bar or relaxing by a bonfire at the beach? We have those too. For those that enjoy a good party here and there. So do we. We like theme parties such as masquerade party, mustache and wig party, and nerd and geek party. We also have fun celebrations like Halloween and New Year Eve Bash. Oh, let's not forget, we love wine and cheese and delicious and unique beers. We have events to cover all grounds including Game Night (Cards Against Humanity, Jenga, Uno or Exploding Kittens anyone??)

Ultimately, our main focus is connections! We are a group of fun professionals that continue to expand our minds through relationships, events and life experiences! JOIN US!
