Now over 40 Scouts strong, Troop 111 continued to adventure across the backcountry and sharpen their Scouting skills during the fall of 2016.
In September, the Scouts descended on Lion Canyon in the Los Padres National Forest for National Public Lands Day, and cleared sections of trail leading to both the East Fork Lion and West Fork Lion campsites.
In October, they mountain biked through Rice and Wills Canyons on the Ojai Valley Land Conservancy’s Ventura River Preserve, attended the Seaside Highland Games in Ventura, and backpacked and performed service along the Santa Ynez mountains above Carpinteria.
November and December saw the Scouts backpack along the historic Ocean View trail and help reopen the “p-line” heading east toward White Ledge Peak, spend three days in the Mojave desert launching their own home-made rockets at ROCstock, and host a Webelos Invitational at El Capitan State Beach — where they hiked, learned paracord designs, and taught Cub Scouts outdoor and first aid skills.
More great adventures await — join us!
