Dardanelles Backpacking Trip Summary

Posted on Jun 14 2016 - 3:38pm

The hike was sort of rocky but the lake view was really worth it. The group went fishing and learned how to cast. The weather was good with just a few light rain sprinkles. The group saw lots of animals: two marmots, two chipmunks, two frogs, two bald eagles, two other birds of prey, and even had a few big spider encounters. There were four water crossings - three with rocks and one with a log, and we hiked through a lot of snow to get to Round Lake. Seven Scouts plus five adults attended the trip. It was about 4 miles to the lake and we started at about 7200’ at Big Meadow trailhead and hiked up to about 7800’.

Pt. Reyes Hiking Trip Summary

Posted on Mar 30 2016 - 10:31am

On Saturday we met at the church and carpooled to Pt Reyes.  When we arrived we had lunch and then set off hiking.  We made it the 5 miles to the camp and had time to eat dinner, have s'mores, play wiffleball, and to complete the 1000 foot elevation climb for the camping merit badge.  The next rainy morning,we started our day hike to the waterfall.  The conditions were too treacherous to get to the waterfall, but it was still a fun hike to the beach.  When we got back, it stopped raining, so we could play wiffleball again.  The next morning, we got out before it started pouring rain and headed for home.
