[gss-content-box]This summary of the 19 Oaks Camping trip is by Connor G.[/gss-content-box]

We met at big five Saturday morning at 7 AM. We headed up the 154 to Paradice Rode. We left our cars at the trailhead and headed up to camp. It was a nice and quick hike. We set up camp in a nice shady place. There was a rock nearby that some of the scouts climbed on. Some of the younger scouts got their Totin’ chips and Firem’n Chip. The older scouts hiked on to Alexandra Saddle.

Everyone slept well Saturday night. We had a few mishaps with the stoves. The sunrise was beautiful in the valley over the mountains. We broke down camp and headed down the trail. What are the scouts predicted that we would get back at 10:10 and he was right! We headed down Paradise Road onto the 154 and went home.
