A few weeks ago Joey and I went to Moab in southern Utah with the entire Ward Young Men's Group. Even though Joey isn't of Young Men's age, beause he had earned his Arrow of Light he was able to attend since some of the camp was Scout related. We spent 4 days and 3 nights there and other than the record rain the first night (some of which is still in our sleeping bags), the trip was amazing. We hiked over 10 miles in Arches National Park, spent almost an entire day riding the white water rapids on the Green River and ate some great dutch-oven meals each day at the campsite. It was Joey's first official Scout camp and it was full of memories. Below are some pictures.
