Editor’s Note: This is one of a series of vlogs created by our current MSBA/MSIS students. You can see the full series here

Follow along as some MSIS graduate students go on a hike to take a break from studying and enjoy the outdoors. They offer some great facts about hiking near the University (there are hundreds of miles of hiking trails within an hour of campus!) and how the MSIS organizes outdoor excursions for their students. Watch to see a glimpse of what hiking looks like in Utah, and how beautiful Utah is during sunset.
