GREENWICH JOURNAL Thursday, August 26,1999 SALEM PRESS Items may be left at Salem Market for Monday pick up V e n tu r e C r e w h i k e l o n g t r a i l in N e w H a m p s h i r e m o u n t a i n s Rest break a t the top of S o u th Twin The Venture Crew of B.S.A. Troop 61 from Salem recently returned from a summer backpacking trip to the White Mountains in New Hampshire. Seven Scouts and two adult leaders completed the 50-mile trek on the Appalachian Trail in six days. Starting in Franconia Notch on Friday, June 25, the group climbed to Liberty Spring tent site for the night. The group managed to set up camp before a storm passed through the area. This was the shortest day in hiking distance, but the group gained more than 2400 feet in elevation. On the second day, the group crossed Franconia Ridge climbing Mt. Liberty, Haystack, Mt. Lincoln, Mt. Lafayette and Mt. Garfield before reaching another tent site and a much needed resupply of water. The next day of the trip was the longest in hiking time and mileage. Traveling from Garfield Ridge to Ethan Pond, the group covered 16 miles, hik­ ing from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. Ethan Pond tent site had experienced problems with bears-and there were 55 gallon drums with \covers for storage o f food and other -scented items such as fuel and camera film. Awaking early on Monday morning, the crew headed down to Route 302 to meet a resupply of food and a switch to smaller packs for the climb up W ebster Cliff, Mt. Webster and Mt. Jackson. They reached Madison Springs Hut minutes before a downpour of rain and rested before dinner. The last two nights of the trek were spent in huts provided by the Appalachian Mountain Club. The huts are the only areas hikers can camp above treeline in the White Mountains. On Tuesday, the group only had to travel six miles to Lakes of the Clouds hut crossing over several peaks approaching Mt. Washington. They again arrived a little before an­ other storm and spent the afternoon sleeping and playing cards. Overnight the temperature dropped to around 35 degrees on the summit of Washington with 40 mile an hour winds. On Wednesday morning the Scouts finally realized why they were carrying cold weather gear for a summer hike. The crew reached the summit o f Mt. Washington just as the clouds cleared and enjoyed a great view in all directions. After a couple of hours, the group headed down the mountain to Pinkham Notch for a shower and a change of clothes. The crew returned to Salem late on June 30 after a traditional stop for dinner at the Wells River Restaurant. The following troop members com­ pleted the trek and earned a 50-mile award and Venture Backpacking pin. They were scouts Bryan Rich, Nolan Cuevas, Adrian Dawson, Tristan Pat­ rick, Dennis Blockburger, Ricky Beaver, Brendan Kennelly and adults Jim Arend and Thane Rea. Boy Scout Troop 61 is chartered by the Salem First United Presbyterian Church. Any boys vvho are at least 11 years old and may be interested in joining the troop are invited to the troop meeting on Monday, August 30, at 7 p.m., at the church.
