Saddleback Butte State Park Camping

Scout’s Report

Saddleback Butte was fun. The trail near our camp led us past about 100 Joshua trees, countless kangaroo rat holes, and plenty of sand. We eventually got to the saddle.  After much rest, we climbed up the “butte.” At the top of that, we found a USGS stamp with the elevation and other information.  We went back to the saddle and took a rest.  Then we hurried back to camp so we could have agua  and om-noms.  We had campfire burgers and bread.  After eating and re-writing the duty roster, we got to work with teaching knots and lashings.  We built a shade structure.
