Phonetics Lab Hike

On October 20th Sam & Abby lead a successful Phonetics Lab hike on a glorious, sunshine-filled Sunday at Buttermilk Falls State Park.

P-lab hikers were joined by family members for a hike spanning the upper & lower sections of the park. Many pictures were taken at bridges and scenic waterfalls along the way, and no one was lost to grizzly bear attacks or alien abduction.

Hikers finished the outing with a tasty Wegman's lunch tray (courtesy of the Linguistics Department) and scrumptious home-made Indonesian dumplings (courtesy of Okki's wife Mega).
