Calico Ghost Town, January 2014

Friday, January 30th, 2015

The troop decided to try something different and camped at Calico Ghost Town. It was typical Mojave Desert camping with the added bonus of a real ghost town to explore. Boys had a great time including a fun train ride, touring an old silver mine, panning for gold, and exploring a “mystery shack” where the laws of physics seemed to be broken. Boys had plenty of time for some skills training, lighting a great campfire, cooking up good grub, and even playing a few games in the desert.
