April 2021 Horton Springs

On April 17th-18th 2021 troop 323 and 3323 went on a backpacking trip to Horton Springs along the Horton Creek trail in the Tanto National forest. 13 scouts attended, and for many, this was their first backpacking experience. The scouts set up camp only to find out the original area they choose to camp was closed due to the presence of endangered Mexican spotted owls. After reviewing the new information the PLC members chose to relocate about a mile and a half away back down the trail. The scouts had fun on this trip cooking their meals, filtering Creek water and for many encountering, such a special species was very exhilarating. The round trip was 8 miles and they climbed over 1400 feet during the course of the hike.
