A Snowy Flagstaff Outing – Ft. Tuthill!!!

Hello Troop 648

We had a fantastic trip to Flagstaff recently to play in the snow! Most of us had to dust off our winter weather gear as we enjoyed lots of snowfall and temperatures below 30˚.

We headed out Friday afternoon in front of a snow storm that blanketed the area throughout the evening and early the next morning. After feasting on breakfast burritos, the Scouts headed to the hills to create snow forts/snow caves. We then ventured over to a new snow play area just a stone’s throw away and had an awesome lunch from a local food truck. We had reservations for the afternoon tubing where we all enjoyed careening down the hill — mostly in control!

A great pizza dinner Saturday night, and a Sunday morning exit to beat the next snow storm, rounded out another successful T648 outing!

All-in-all, a fun journey to a beautiful part of this amazing state we call home. I want to personally thank the adults — Donna Ramsey, Jacob Benyi and Lisa Hoberg — who gave their time to drive and help throughout the trip. We can NOT have great weekend’s like this without the help and support of the adult leaders in the troop. Thank you brave snow warriors!

See you at California Pizza Kitchen on Tuesday, January 31st!

YOYO – You Only Yurt Once! Well, maybe… but I’m pretty sure the Scouts would be up for it again. Especially if you can get the hot stove cranking!
