This one continues to be one of our favorite destinations,
both for hiking and for overnights. The beauty of the lake at the end
(complete with stocked lean-to) makes it worthwhile.
By "stocked", we mean that we found an un-opened can of
Spam that somebody had left there (which Mr. I. promptly ate, to the
amazement and disgust of all the scouts).
|We decided to take a
for the return. We're not exactly sure that was our best idea, as
the trip back ended up being longer (5.6 miles vs 7.0) and more difficult.
As reward though, the Troop treated everybody to ice cream in Old Forge upon
