Boy Scout Troop 514 rock climbing

Troop 514 recently took its annual September backpacking, camping, rock climbing weekend. Eleven Scouts enjoyed their time camping at Hoffer Lake above Anthony Lake and then rock climbing higher up.  We have been doing this event since the early eighties.

We set up our tents in the rain.  When the clouds cleared in the evening, we enjoyed a spectacular sunset that reflected in Hoffer Lake.

Troop 514 snow shoe to Hoffer Lake

On Saturday, I snow shoed up to Hoffer Lake, above Anthony Lake, OR  with five Scouts and two other adult leaders. I came back with two “day” scouts, and the others are camped up there tonight. It was a proverbial winter wonderland, but not enough to attract/convince my “elderly” body to stay overnight
