The boys of Troop 287 had a grand time paddling, floating, and swimming down the Green River near Moab, Utah. It was certainly hot during the middle of the day, but massive canyon walls and peaks occasionally provided shade. Jumping into the river off large boulders became an instant hit as well.
Mud – it was everywhere – for a lot of boys, that was a bonus ‘fun’ feature.
At the end of the trip, we camped with another Boy Scout troop* and had a nice campfire program and ate wonderful chocolate brownies made by Mr. Ullmann in the dutch ovens.
Overall, spirits were high, the rigor was just right, and it’s safe to say all had a great time and experience.
We’ll certainly have more photos to show at the next court of honor.
