On January 16, 2016, Troop 48 went on a hike at 9:00 am. It was a great day to hike – beautiful and sunny. The first quarter of the trip was a little uphill, the second part was a little bit steeper, the third portion of the hike was probably the steepest and the fourth segment was the best – a great view, a great picnic area and a beautiful trail down.  At the top of the mountain, I thought I could see the entire City. It was nice to see how many scouts went on the hike. It really made me feel good to see how many showed up and took the challenge.
