Scoutmaster update - May 21, 2012

posted May 21, 2012, 8:43 AM by Brent Browning   [ updated Jun 16, 2012, 11:50 PM ]

This weekend we had two separate groups backpacking!  15 Scouts and 3 adults hiked the scenic Point Reyes National Seashore and camped with along the beach.  Sounds like the weather was perfect and all enjoyed the beach and some even liked the dehydrated food.  Meanwhile, 15 Scouts and 6 adults hiked the Sunol / Ohlone Regional Wilderness.  We covered over 21 miles with over 6000’ elevation gain one of our last two shakedowns before heading to Philmont.  It was extremely challenging and all made it.
