These hikers started at the Elk Creek Lake trailhead and hiked 15 miles to the New Chapel trailhead, stopping to camp near the Leota Trailhead.
“The troop would like to thank the anonymous local benefactor who donated $500 for uniforms and books,” said Scoutmaster Steve Plasse. “Visit the troop’s booth at Saturday’s FFA Craft Show to buy an evergreen wreath and other crafts.”
