Alpine Campout

This past weekend, we went camping at Alpine Scout Reservation. We went on a hike that took us to the cliffs overhanging the Hudson and through some rugged terrain. It was gorgeous. There is a route for the hike. I had a bit of trouble putting the photos on the hike route but will try to do better in the future.

It was quite a variety of weather which included:

  • thunderstorm
  • rain
  • snow
  • high winds
  • cold

Regardless, we weathered it all and came back on Sunday, tired but in good spirits.

You can view the photos on the troop web site Twitter page. Remember that the photos will be in reverse order. Also, my camera died and I missed some good shots but did the best I could. I'll get a battery charger for the next trip.

Your in Scouting,
