Scouting in Monrovia, California

Red Rock Canyon – Mojave Desert, February 2015

March 5th, 2015 at 18:27

The troop paid another visit to one of our favorite desert camps – Red Rock Canyon State Park. We arrived after dark on Friday night and scouts set up their camp in a bit of desert wind. The next day, scouts had a great time exploring the cliffs. Boys had a full Saturday complete with skills training and a 4×4 adventure to Burro Schmidt Tunnel and Bickel Camp (cool old mining sites). We ended Saturday with a relaxing campfire of toasted marshmallows, dumb jokes and stories, with the Milky Way overhead and the occasional shooting star. Scouts prepared for another windy night by being extra careful in battening down their tents. We awoke to a beautiful cold but sunny dawn to break camp before the long drive home.
