Sierra Nevada Recap

What a great weekend of backpacking! Friday night we watched a meteor shower and awoke to a beautiful sunrise on Dome Rock. On Saturday we strolled along the Trail of 100 Giants. Check out the video of the two sequoias that fell in 2011 here.  We put on our backpacks at Lewis Camp and hiked to the Little Kern River bridge, then on to Trout Meadows. At camp we rested then played cards, chess, and 3 Flies Up before turning in for the night. A bear visited the camp, but all the food was in the elevated bear bags, so he moved on.  On Sunday we left the campground better than we found it and hiked with great determination uphill to the trailhead. Overall we hiked over 15 miles with an elevation gain of 3,000 feet!

June’s Schedule

After our most recent PLC, we have come up with our future schedule for the meetings. Just a quick heads up, there will be NO troop meeting next Monday, the 26th  due to Memorial Day. The following week, June 2nd, there are troop elections, followed by the Court Of Honor, on June 9th. As a patrol, you should have an idea of who has their job for the week, and EVERY boy should know what their patrols duty is. With that being said, on the 2nd of June, Snipes have Games, Trojans have Desserts, and Badgers have Flags. On the 9th the Sabertooths have Dessert duty. Any questions or concerns, you may contact out SPL: Landon Burtchell

Matilija Recap

What a fantastic weekend of backpacking! The trail was in good condition, with plenty of shade and water crossings. We arrived on Saturday and hiked 5 miles to the campsite. Once camp was setup, scouts enjoyed exploring the area and playing games. We enjoy beef stroganoff and chicken fajitas for dinner, and ores and roasted marshmallows for dessert. On Sunday we left the campground better then we found it and enjoyed great views hiking downhill to the trailhead. See you on the next backpacking trip in the Sierra Nevada mountains in May.
