Took the Scouts on backpack trip this weekend to the Cranberry Wilderness area. The younger Scouts did a 5 mile loop, while the older ones did closer to 11 miles.
The younger Scouts walked in 2.5 miles and set up camp while the older Scouts started from the other end of the trial. A few hours later and 8.5 miles later we joined the Wolf patrol for a night of camp fire, dinner, and music! One of the Scout's Dad has a backpack guitar (2lb) and treated us to numerous songs around the fire.
Here are some photos (if they do not post, check out the photos in my album (Middle Fork Trail)
PS: if someone can point me to a post on how to upload more than one photo at a time to an album -- that would be great
