this is where I want to go!

Tonight was the last activity for Ronnie’s Troop so they wanted to go on a hike then meet at Nutter’s for ice cream. These plans were made before the weather forecast called for high humidity and a 96 degree day. Oh well….Boy Scouts are supposed to be able to survive any type of weather, right?!

We met at the top of South Mountain and headed up the trail – even though it was hot, it was still a beautiful night –


we came across some poison –


an odd looking tree –


a ‘daddy’ long legs – I have always called them Grandaddy Long Legs but was corrected tonight =)


but we kept climbing –


and finally we saw this sign! Yippee, we made it – it seemed like 5 miles (it wasn’t)


After a small hike to the top, this is what we saw!


Wow, can you imagine what this would look like on a clear night?! This sign pointed out spots that we were familiar with –


I think these guys were glad to be at the top –


After looking around, they decided to check out the actual monument –


The steps were pretty cool –


and soon it was time to leave but one more look around – I’d give a penny for those thoughts….


some berries on the trail back –


then we wrapped up the evening with some ice cream from my favorite place =)


It was a very nice evening and wrap up to the Scout year. Guess I’m going to be watching the weather to determine when we can go back so I can get a clear view!
