Our scouts have spent a lot of time hiking and camping in the outdoors this summer and as a result have had the opportunity to see quite a few snakes.  Here are a few photos that members of our troop have taken.

We went on an overnight backpacking trip this weekend on Roan Mountain.

The weather was great; the hiking was fun; the scenery was breathtaking; the night sky was awesome; the blueberries were ripe; and we got to sleep in a barn… what more could we ask for?

We have returned from our 12-day / 80 mile trek in the New Mexico backcountry at the Philmont Scout Ranch.  It was a great experience that we will all remember for a lifetime.
