Hiking with Eagles

Hiking with Eagles and other senior scouts

During the yearend holidays our troop attempts to reunite many of our Eagle Scouts that are typically home for the holidays. One of the better ways to create a sense of belonging, while cultivating an effective environment for the younger scouts to learn from the older scouts, is to go on a hike! Our area is blessed with many great hiking areas within a 45 minute drive. A favorite hike of many locals is Anthony’s Nose. Led by Eagle Scouts, Dan A. & Evan W., our cadre of 25 hikers, including 5 Eagle Scouts, enjoyed a beautiful day of January sunshine. It has been about 3 years since our troop last tackled Anthony’s Nose. And with some snow & ice present, the trek was a bit more arduous and slow-gowing than anticipated. After the hike, it was estimated that the Camp Smith trail to Anthony’s Nose criss-crossed 3 peaks, resulting in a cumulative elevation climb of well over 2000 feet–which explains why so many were so tired and slept well that night!
