Troop 212's second trip up Smith rock was a fun, yet changing and rewarding hike.
To the scouts' relief, the temperature was nice and cool; the weather was perfect
for hiking! Nearly three miles, and one thousand feet later, we reached the peak and
the views at the peak were great. About and hour and several sandwiches later, we
headed down the back side of the rock that exposed Monkey Face Rock. We headed
back to our campsite and prepared a "feast" for the hungry and tired scouts. We rested
up and headed home the next day. What a beautiful hike. Can't wait to come back to
smith rock again sometime.
Looking back, maybe the food wasn't so great after all, but smith rock is a favorite
spot among scouts, at least when it's not too hot out.
