We took an early hike today, it was our longest yet - over 2.5 miles! All the boys collected dried lichen to use as tender for their fires.
The views were amazing.
And none of the Caterpillars complained at all! We were so proud of them.
She was "helping" him hike part of the time.
And sleeping soundly the other part.
After our long hike, we had a picnic lunch by the South Forks River. More beautiful views and a nice sheltered area, so the wind wasn't bad.
Then, Hubby and King helped all the boys build another fire. This is such an important part of preparing them for Boy Scouts - we were glad to have the opportunity to work with them in a smaller group (rather than ALL our Scouts on a Sunday).
