Our May outing was a backpacking trip to West Clear Creek.
This historically is a trip used as a beginner backpacking trip however, due to the lack of new scouts, we hiked in and out quickly both days. Most of our time was spent at camp, playing in the water. There is a large red rock that provides a platform about seven feet above the water we jumped from. Our time in camp was very enjoyable, and the weather was perfict.
We would like to thank Mr. Marcon for leading the outing, and to all of the adults present. Also, another shoutout to Beezer who was the SPL for this outing.

Webster’s dictionary describes an eagle as a large bird of prey with sharp vision and powerful wings, famous for their strength, size, grace, and keen vision. It is the national emblem for the United States. Though the eagle is found throughout the world, it is never found in abundance; it is always rare and it is always a superb specimen.
In Scouting the eagle stands for strength of character, and for knowledge of all phases of Scouting. The eagle represents an understanding of community and nation, and a deep respect for same. The eagle is a symbol of what a young man has done as well as what that young man will do, and will be, when he grows to manhood. The eagle is a leader. The eagle is respected, both by his peers and by his adult leaders.
The EAGLE SCOUT AWARD is the highest award available to youth members of the Boy Scouts of America. It is a recognition by the National Court of Honor, presented through the local council and a local court of honor.
It represents many years of dedicated effort , and the successful completion of a long process which started when the young man became a Boy Scout. It is a demonstration of how people, working together, can truly help mold a young man with a solid sense of leadership, citizenship, and responsibility.
Not every boy, nor every Scout, qualifies for the high rank of Eagle.
The attainment of the Eagle Scout Rank is indeed the highest honor that a Scout may achieve.
