COH 8.08, 10 of the 13 Eagle Scouts of Troop 270 are present!  The only ones missing are Rob Standley (#2),  and Grant Hooper (#9) and Kyle Cajero (#11) - Grant and Kyle xferred to 270 just to do their projects and complete Eagle, so were not in the Troop for very long - I think they both came in about 2011-2012.

We picked up the Baby Jesus Trail and took it to a stream and then we bushwacked up the stream bed to the campsite. Terrain was good while on trail and turned to rough terrain when following the stream bed. Brush and cactus were pretty intense and it took a while to find a suitable campsite. We ended up picking a hilltop that although there was no shade it was flat and provided excellent views. A shade canopy was constructed and the boys spent most of the afternoon exploring the rock formations in the stream. We worked on the Camping Merit Badge with several of the boys and were able to complete a big chunk of it on the campout.
Everyone had taken 5 quarts of water which turned out to be just enough. It was warmer than expected, so we shortened the hike length to just 2 miles one way, and decided to stay close to water. The scouts did some exploring and found some neat rock formations in the stream.
The boys had a good time and a common thought with the boys was to return to the same area but hike further back and do more exploring. Next time we will either depart earlier or go when temperatures
are cooler. Although the backpacking was a short distance it was through some pretty tough terrain. The boys did good on this “moderate adventure” trip.
