Hoegee’s Backpack By Geoff

I couldn’t attend but some scouts reported back to me on this outing.

The scouts had a great time backpacking into the Hoegee’s camp ground which is about a 3 mile hike along a stream in a rugged forest in the San Gabriel Mountains.

We had to get our water filtered from the stream.  It was cool under the trees but very hot above the trees as a group  of scouts tried to climb Mt. Zion.  They ran out of water and had to turn back near the top. 

Some scouts completed their 5 mile map and compass. The scouts who did not hike made  some short videos around the campground.  Francesco  led this outing and did a great job.

There were bears in the area and we heard some spooky noises at night.

Most scouts stopped at In-and-Out Burger on the way home Sunday.
