Super Scouts Go 100 Miles for Anniversary

Members of Boy Scout Troop 1491 planned a journey from the Elwha River to the Dosewalips River this summer in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Boy Scouting. Scouts hiked for 60 miles, bicycled for 20 miles and canoed the remaining 20.   They hiked over four passes — Hayes, Constance, Marmot and Buckhorn — coming out at the Upper Little Quilcene trailhead and biking to Quilcene where canoes were waiting for the final phase of the journey. Seven Scouts completed the entire trip, with others joining for different sections. Participants were, from left, leader Michelle Grinnell, Eagle Scout Jason Kowitz, Duncan Skinner, Mack Grinnell, Tristan Tosland, Johnathon Campbell, Matthew Harker, Ian McAndie, Josh Daker and leader John McAndie.
