50 Miler

To the left is the bear claws I was talking about.

To the left is the hail storm on Day 5, Friday.

We did a 50 miler through the week of July 7-12(Mon.-Sat.). The first day we on Monday we woke up at 5:00 and headed to Boulder mountain. We hiked 6 miles and passed one lake called Chriss lake. We camped at Deer Creek a different lake, then hiked up to another lake called Green Lake. That is where I caught my first and last fish on the hike. It was a cutthroat about 6 in. The next day we hiked 12 miles and passed three lakes. We camped by some trees that had bear claws on it. We have a picture of it some where on my blog. The next day was the hardest because we hiked 5 miles straight up Boulder Mountain and then another 3 miles in to our base camp. We passed the most lakes that day, we passed four lakes. The two days we day hikes. The first day we hikes 10 miles and it wasn't very hard. Day 5 wasn't very hard because we hiked only 7 miles but it hailed and rained on us. That night I ate my very first brook trout. It was delicious!! We also hiked to a lake called Crater Lake. The lake had a tons of fish in it mostly brook trout. The next day, day 6, the last day we hiked 7 miles back to the cars. It was so beautiful there and we saw a lot of cows and some deer. Everyone was so excited!! We had a surprise lunch which was steak, dutch oven potatoes and, dutch oven rolls. It was so good!! We hiked a total of 50.75 miles starting Monday July 7 through Saturday July 12.

Back packing trip to pine mountain.

My scout troop, my dad and, me went on a very hard hike this weekend. There was a total of 17 people there, 5 adults and 12 boys. We started at the bottom of pine mountain and hiked up, over and, down it. It was at least 15 miles with 20-25 pounds on your back. We started at about 2:00 PM on friday and it was pretty much straight up and then camped the night. The next day we hiked to the highest part of pine mountain called signal peak. We got our packs and hiked down pine mountain. We dropped 6000 feet in 3 miles. We got back to the cars at about 2:30 PM(well at least I did). The next day we were so sore we could barely walk.
