Hang, Hike & BBQ at Mill Creek Canyon

Getting inspired about design isn’t just about listening to lectures, sometimes design inspiration can come from the outdoors. And what better inspiration than a hike with fellow designers? Join us at our first Hang, Hike and BBQ, and you'll be able to start your day off with a hike, visit with other local designers all while enjoying some delicious barbecue afterwards. 

Let’s enjoy the beauty Utah has to offer and take a hike in the stunning Wasatch National Forest. The Terraces-Elbow Fork Trail is really easy for everyone and not too strenuous. All levels of experience, age and fitness are welcome for the hike. Seriously, we’ll take it easy. After all, this is about enjoying the outdoors, having a good conversation and connecting with a fellow creative. That's you.

After the hike, we’ll meet back at the Archibald Gardner group site to enjoy hamburgers, hot dogs (we’ll have vegetarian options) and some delicious picnic sides and drinks. What better way to say farewell to summer than spending time in the outdoors?
