San Mateo Camp

The troop headed up to San Mateo campground (part of San Onofre State Beach) for the first time.  We had some good sites that had the adults behind a screen of bushes and trees.  On Saturday morning, we hiked out to Trestles beach and enjoyed the sun and sand for a while.  We saw some whales that were very close to the shore.  We later found out we missed a dead whale washing up on shore by a day. After lunch, we did some skills and advancement.  In the evening, we an very nice campfire.

Laguna Mt. Hike

A couple friends are I headed up to the Laguna Mountatin Recreation Area for a good hike.  We parked at the information center along Sunrise Highway and headed out along the Sunset Trail.  After some incline and then a gentle decline, we headed south on the Big Laguna Trail.  We stopped for lunch and coffee at a nice spot overlooking Big Laguna which had a decent amount of water.  We then followed the trail back to the car ending up hiking 11+ miles.  The weather all day was threatening rain but we never got anything more that some light mist.  The rain threat kept most of the people away and there were only a few on the trail.  Great hike on a great day.
