Snow backpacking, San Jacinto SP – March 1-2, 2014

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

The troop returned to San Jacinto State Park for some amazing backpacking through the snow. Scouts had a lot of fun riding the Palm Springs Tram and at the top found a winter wonderland with heavy snow falling as they hiked. Scouts hiked for a couple of hours and set up camp in the deep snow at around 9,000 feet elevation. The boys really had to live the boy scout motto, “Be Prepared”, to stay warm, dry, and comfortable on this adventure. Check out the pictures!
