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.

Tuesday, Aug 26th

We added a little variety this week by having our troop meeting on the river.  We had great food, fun, and fellowship.  Home grown, river-chilled watermelon is hard to beat.

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?
