Man Hunt on Sugarloaf Mountain under the moonlight--what more could a scout ask for in a campout?  How about a little hurricane weather on Sunday morning?

Practicing the axe throw, relaxing around camp, and wading in the Sugarloaf Mountain Lake to cool-off.  

Leaders Lead

Mr. Duffy knows how to relax in camp!
Mr. Ingram can always find time for a good book--especially one on his new GPS/walkie-talkies.  Hope he got rid of his chiggers!

Sugarloaf Scenes

From left to right:  A  large piece of hematite at the base of Sugarloaf.  Hematite is sand glued-together with iron.  Lichens (an alga and a fungus growing together) growing on the face of the rock.  The famous potjie pot--known for great beef stews.  The sky on Saturday from atop the mountain.....things changed dramatically Sunday morning with the advance of a hurricane.  View from the top of Sugarloaf--the picture does not do it justice!
