The beautiful Columbus Day weekend was the backdrop for Troop 71’s two-night camping trip to Onteora Scout Reservation in Livingston Manor, NY. In fact, the Scouts had the entire 1400-acre Catskill camp to themselves. After setting up camp and lunch on Saturday, the Scouts hiked the two-mile perimeter of the Orchard Lake, observing the handiwork of its active beaver population and other areas of the reservation. Then they headed back to the site for practicing tomahawk and knife throwing, collecting and cutting a mountain of firewood and cooking a delicious skirt steak dinner, complete with hash browns, sauteed onions and cream spinach, topped off with apple cobbler.
