Wrapped up against the cold, the Cubs and Scouts visited the Silver Mountain Pagodas this week.
The Scouts took the long route up, covering a 7km trek around the back of the mountain. Meanwhile, the Cubs made basecamp at the Pagodas, including lashing together the bamboo flagpoles. The Cubs took a more direct hike up the mountain, meeting the Scouts at the very top.
On the descent, Cubs and Scouts had the opportunity to ring the great bell. Then signal a progress report down to basecamp via semaphore.
Back at basecamp, all the effort was rewarded with a waiting supply of hot chocolate! What else?!
