The boys and leaders of 376 braved the 65 degree January weather and camped at Camp Alpine this past weekend including hiking the Alpine South at the Palisades Interstate Park in New Jersey. Along the hike, we visited a spot where the Park Commission’s first police chief’s body was found after he fell from the top cliff, Huyler’s Landing, a busy river landing for farm goods transport through the 19th century, the road the British army of 5,000 men used to capture Fort Lee, ruins of a 2 story estate owned by a flour merchant and historian in 1911 and many other sites! Between the hike, cooking, rank advancement work at camp, and hiking the campgrounds, the troop had an adventure-filled (yet exhausted) weekend!

Finally going downhill!
