Last weekend Finn & I joined his Webelos scout crew on what proved to be a rather epic hike in the Santa Cruz mountains just off Highway 1. As you can see in our gallery, on Saturday we climbed & climbed over the course of a six-mile trail, then set up our rather sad & bizarre little pup tent. Thankfully Sunday was mostly downhill, and upon returning to civilization, Finn was more than happy to take me up on my offer of an immense burger.
The boys had a ball designing their Pinewood Derby racers, having them carved at a woodshop, applying paint & graphite, and then finally letting them rip last Sunday. Though we didn’t set any track records, we enjoyed the 3-second bursts of adrenaline. 🙂 Here’s a little gallery of the event, featuring their cars plus some of our favorites from other scouts.
