Sierra "B" Trek Recap

Posted on Aug 19 2012 - 5:11pm

This trip was a journey of 5 scouts and 3 adults backpacking through the Upper and Lower Relief Valleys in the Emigrant Wilderness north of Yosemite. After driving most of the day, the first night was spent roughing it at the Kennedy Meadows Resort in a cabin for eight.  It rained later that day and throughout the night while we all stayed warm and dry in the cabin.  The next day we woke to clear skies and sunshine!   This day was spent hiking 6.8 miles while climbing over 2,000 feet in elevation into the Lower Relief Valley.  We arrived tired and ready for food, a camp fire, and much needed rest.  We woke the next day refreshed and ready to continue our journey.  More sunshine greeted us and we hiked another 2 miles and 500 feet in elevation into the Upper Relief Valley where we found two beautiful mountain lakes.  We spent our time there hiking, fishing, and enjoying the wilderness.  During our day of rest, we hiked to the top of Granite Dome (10,322 ft).  This took us most of the day and we raced back to camp under ever darkening skies.  It rained most of that night and continued into the next morning.  We broke camp slowly in the rain and headed back toward our starting point. With everyone feeling great and the skies still dark, we decided to hike all of the way back to our cars and end our journey.

Camp Emerald Bay Recap

Posted on Aug 6 2012 - 7:40am

Troop 636's 19 scouts and 4 adults successfully returned from the gem of Catalina last Satuday - Emerald Bay summer camp.  Going in style could be the theme of this trip.  We were picked up at the Target parking lot by a Vegas style party limo bus complete with big screen TV, champagne flutes and mirrored lighted ceilings!  The ride was very COOL.  After a quick ferry ride to the island we found our paradise waiting with Club Med like activities galore:  SCUBA diving, kayaking, rifle and shotgun shooting, mountain biking, sailing, motor boating, swimming, tanning and did I say SCUBA diving all supervised and coordinated by the helpful customer-service-friendly Emerald Bay staff.

San Jacinto Winter Backpack

Posted on Apr 25 2012 - 7:21pm
In late March 2012, five scouts and three adults from Troop 636, ventured into the alpine environment of Mt. San Jacinto. We had rescheduled the hike from March 3-4 to March 24-25 in hopes of additional snow and the wait really paid off. After a hardy breakfast at Farmer Boys we arrive at the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway parking lot on schedule. The tram ride is always quick and breathtaking....sometimes it is too quick for younger scouts to acclimate to the elevation (8,500'). We spent half an hour at the Mountain Tram station relaxing and adjusting to the elevation.
