Video: For AESOP trip leaders, Katahdin is the goal, camaraderie the result

Joining a preorientation AESOP trip this year, photographer Mike Bradley captures the leadership of Sophie Pellegrini ’15 of Potomac, Md., and Bobby Lankin ’15 of West Hartford, Conn., as well as the defining moments when, for six first-year students who’ve never met one another, “it clicks, and everyone feels comfortable.”

Calling themselves the Baxter Bushwackers, the group hiked into Baxter State Park and to the summit of Mount Katahdin during the last week of August.

    Thanks for a very nice piece. Should be “last week of August.”
