The crew left Iris Park as the sun was rising Friday, with the goal of covering 8.5 miles to Rich Cabins by 11:00 a.m. so that Ranger Danny could switch places with Ranger Dylan. The group made it there only 10 minutes late after a challenging hike that included crossing two creeks, a marsh and a mountain ridge. The Scouts set a good pace and even sang songs as they hiked. It was inspiring to hear them singing "Amazing Grace" as the group traversed the meadow at Iris Park in the early morning sunlight.

Today, the crew hiked up Wilson's Mesa on the way to Pueblano. The climb was very strenuous but the view was worth the trip. The crew enjoyed lunch beside the lake on the mesa and will be moving to the next camp shortly.
