Spruce Grove backpacking September 2011

This weekend was a repeat visit to Spruce Grove Trail Camp in the San Gabriel Mountains, last hiked back in 2008. This is a beautiful local backpacking trip, starting at Chantry Flat and hiking first down and then up through Santa Anita Canyon above Sturtevant Falls. Scouts hiked about 10 miles over two days. All our scouts did a great job, including some new boys on their first backpacking trip.
