What a gorgeous hike, but challenging, especially in the light rain. We had to take precautions scrambling and hiking over wet rocks, but the stunning views on the Blue Dot Trail were worth it. Thank you to Kiyoshi for leading us on this 5-mile hike on the Blue Dot Trail, Appalachian Trail, and finally the Monument Trail to our destination and back again safely. We could barely make out the High Point Monument in the mist but nonetheless felt achievement making it there.
Troop 12 scouts, scouters, family, and friends kicked off another year of scouting. With a growing girls troop and a bunch of new scouts, there was a lot of excitement and anticipation for an excellent year.
