Troop 100B enjoyed a week of adventure in Colorado in August 2021. It started with many delays of canceled flights.
The first group arrived at Noah’s Ark in Buena Vista, CO on Sunday night and were able to do some rappelling and rock climbing on Monday.
The second group had a second cancelled flight and spent the day in Birmingham at Top Golf and the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame.
By late Monday night everyone had arrived in Colorado. Unfortunately, a couple of the scouts were not able to join the group in Buena Vista due to COVID quarantine.
On Tuesday we all took a hike up Brown’s Creek. It rained much of the way up, soaking everyone. When we arrived at the waterfall, we cooked some lunch and warmed up. Thankfully the sun came out on the way back down and we were able to dry out a little.
When we got back to our basecamp we dried everything out and played some 9 square and volleyball.
On Wednesday morning we hit the river for some great white water rafting.
Wednesday evening was spent at the Brown’s Canyon Adventure Park with a sunset ropes adventure.
Thursday morning we left Noah’s Ark and drove down to Royal Gorge.
After a quick picnic lunch and short hike at the gorge we went on a Zipline course.
We then traveled to Colorado Springs for our next adventures.
On Friday, we rode horses through Garden of the Gods in the morning and took a hike there in the evening.
After a great night’s sleep we returned to our adventures on Saturday with a Cog Railway trip up Pikes Peak where we hikes around a little and ate some donuts.
We then made our way to the airport with the hopes of all of the flights not being cancelled and being able to make the connection in Dallas. Thankfully everything went smoothly and the scouts were able to make it back home.
We all had a great time and created many memories that will last a lifetime.
