BTOW17: The All American Passtime!

While most of the older scouts were out hiking Death Canyon and Cascade Canyon, the younger Scouts one afternoon decided to play a little baseball.  Here are some of the photos from that fun afternoon!

Notice the baseball bat.



Asst. SM Joseph S. was telling us all about how baseball was played over 150 years ago.  I mean, he was there.







How did the bat wind up in the tree?

The batter is up!

BTOW17: Hermitage Point/Swan Lake Hike

On our first full day, we always take a hike to get ourselves acclimated to the altitude and get our muscles going. 

We decided to take a hike in the area of Hermitage Point/Swan Lake.

A couple of us hear that the lake was nearby, so we decided to head out from the campsite and down the trail to Jackson Lake.  This is what we saw!

BTOW17: Stopping for a Bio-Break

Stopping at a gas station/convenience store is a must at least once during the drive.  This time, we stopped at a Sinclair Gas Station, which are numerous out in this part of the country.  

The author of this blog posting remembers them on the East Coast, but they seem to have left this part of the country in the late 60's.

BTOW17 - Lander Cut-Off Pull Off

For some reason, each trip we seem to pull off here.  It is the author's third BTOW to Grand Teton/Yellowstone and his third visit.  Maybe it is simply to stretch our legs.  Maybe it is to look at the scenery.
