TWO Eagle Scouts ! Congrats to Campsite staffers Mike and Evan on both becoming Eagle Scouts Spring 2009. Mike T(R)is from Troop 291 Hicksville. I have known Mike over four years now. He is a great friend, excellent staff member and a very compassionate person. For his ES project Mike collected food donations and refubished the storage facility at the Interfaith Nutrition Network Mens shelter. Evan M(L)is the newbie at Campsite and he always comes in w/ an upbeat ready to work attitude. He is from Troop 34 Huntington and for his ES project he dredged the pond and cleaned up around the dam at the historic Cold Spring Hbr Fish Hatchery. GREAT JOB GUYS! I'm proud of you!
Jonathan at Hurricane Pass in Colorado. What a view!
There she was-Mt McKinley , the highest peak in N.America at 20320 feet ,or as the locals call her- Denali. We got our first glimpse about 75 miles away. The clouds just opened up and invited us to snap away. Breathtaking
Denali just waiting to be conquered
Closeup of Denali
Denali from the air.
Pretty intimidating terrain.
Exciting landing on Elridge Glacier in Denali Nat'l Park. It's so quiet up there.

I need to sell Stephen some hiking boots! I guess he didn't think a glacier would be cold....... You look like a size 9 from here.
Base Camp and expedition on Eldridge Glacier. Appears they "booked" rooms with a view.

Bustling downtown Talkeetna- pop 800. This is the last bit of civilzation for mountain climbers heading to Denali.
Here is Cub Scout Pack 34 from Huntington having a popcorn fundraiser. I hope sales were brisk ,it was cold but that's the Scout spirit! Support Scouting!!
Stephen captured a rare occurence- 2 moose in battle! Chugiak, Alaska. Good thing he brought his camera.
Another Eagle Scout!! That makes Three. Kudos to Nolan C on earning his Eagle Scout. Nolan is a reliable and easy going Campsite staffer who is also a member of BSA Troop 86 Deer Park. For his ES project he refurbished the lavatories at the Deer Park Community Center. Nolan is also a competition shooter and competed at the Camp Perry Nationals in 2009.

Marie S and friends hiked the Crow Pass trail 2 days in August. It's part of the original historic Iditarod Race Trail in Alaska. Awesome trip and thanks for sharing.
Marie psyched for her trip !
Marie S w/ Erin C, Emily R and Morgan D at the top of Crow Pass elevation 3500ft. !! Raven Glacier is behind them. This was only 3.5 miles into the 26 mile trip. All the elevation gain is essentially at the beginning.
Awesome view along the trail.
Erin, Morgan and Emily along the Eagle River AK leading up to their river crossing.
Morgan preparing to cross the Eagle River. It's glacier fed, so its COLD and deep. That faded white post in the backround is the trail continuation.
Official rules for the River crossing.
Mountain Goat , Zion Nat'l Park.
Emily making the River crossing.
Along the trail(remember its August..)
Desolation to some; relaxation to me.
