Owl Canyon & Rainbow Basin, Mojave Desert, May 2013

The troop headed out to the Mojave desert for some scout training this weekend. Scouts earned their Firem’n Chit and Tot’n Chip cards, which grants them the privilege to light fires and carry a pocketknife (on scout events only, not at school!). The scenery was stunning, and the weather was perfect – not too hot. Owl Canyon was a nice campground and we had almost the entire place to ourselves. Rainbow Basin, designated as a National Natural Landmark, was amazing, with jumbled rock formations and lots of canyons and caves to explore.
