Ihunaanya Adventure To Bridge To Nowhere
Happy Travels Adventurista,
Ihunaanya: Understand Your Impact welcomes you to our first adventure of 2018 at Bridge to Nowhere, on January 27-28. Bridge to Nowhere is a hike trekking down the East Fork of the San Gabriel River, featuring multiple river crossings, plenty of opportunities to swim, historic sections of unfinished roads and tunnels, and the Bridge to Nowhere--a 120ft high bridge in the middle of the canyon.
This adventure is a 2-day, 1-night camp out including a 10 mile hike (5mi in, 5mi out), Mindfulness Meditation by Dominique Alston, yoga, a Happiness workshop by Happy Daisy, Chakra Alignment with Zoya Yaseka, and [the option of] Bungee Jumping (with local service, Bungee Jump America).
