Harriman State Park Campout

On October 1st, we went to Harriman State Park in New York for a camping trip. On Saturday morning, we went on a 5 mile hike up Fingerboard Mountain. In the afternoon, most of the scouts paddled out onto Lake Tiorati in kayaks. We also fished by the lake and watched the beautiful sunrise.
