High Point Trip Recap

Troop 17 had a great time at High Point State Park this past weekend. The Scouts hiked 5 miles to the highest point in New Jersey. The Philmont crew carried their backpacks the whole way. It was still snowy and the temperature dropped to 36 degrees. A campfire was built and dinner was extra tasty after the long hike.
