Troop 57 is heading into the wilderness for a two-night, 15 mile trek for those of you wanting a little more backpacking this year.

We will head into the wild on December 21 and return on December 23.  Our destination is the Ventana Wilderness.  One of our goals will be to summit Pico Blanco, one of the highest peaks in the Ventana Wilderness.

Pico Blanco

It will be a great way to start winter break and put those finals behind you!  Plus, for those who need it, the trek will count toward the Backpacking merit badge.  Finally, there is the opportunity to work on that Cooking merit badge.
