During this campout, we didn’t exactly backpack, but we were testing out backpacking meals and packs. This was our first time with the younger scouts doing backpacking meals, and it was a really great experience. We got there at optimal sunset viewing time, and the trees were beautiful shades of red, orange, and yellow. It was really, nice, and because there were so many leaves on the ground, we got extra padding for sleep.
The next morning, we were able to watch the sunrise, and pack up really nicely. After we left, we sent out scouting for food flyers, which was kind of a hassle, because it was windy and hot, so they flyers kept flying away, and we got really hot after like an hour.
