We went on a hike in Elkhorn Slough in Watsonville, CA. We were lead by three wonderful docents. The 3 people who lead the scouts on the trails are: Marilyn McLoughlin, stellar docent guide, Alina Lopez, Fish and Wildlife Scientific Aid, and Virginia Guhin, Education Programs Coordinator. They pointed out different wildlife and history of the area.
Pack 110's first high adventure, (10, 599 feet above sea level), backpacking trip took place this past weekend. Boys that had qualified from training hikes were all there. The Boy Scout Patrol method was used during this overnight adventure. Members of the "Dancing Banana" patrol took along adult members of the pack just to be nice, oh yeah and carry food.
The weather was constantly changing and folks had to be keen to the quickly changing patterns experienced during the trip. There was snow on the ground when we left that had melted by the time we returned. During the trip there was hail, rain, hot sun and wind. Perfect weather!
Inyo National Forest Service map shows 5 miles one way to Upper Sardine Lake site. Oxygen mask would have helped this old trailblazer!

Thanks to all the parents and scouts who came out to represent Pack 110 at the Rose, White, and Blue Parade! This was our first time to participate in the parade as a Pack. Weather was hot and there was a lot of waiting but it was so worth it hearing the crowd cheer for our scouts!
Parents: please feel free to add your photos to this post!
Have a safe and great 4th of July celebration!!
