Okefenokee Canoe Trip: Jan., 2020

This was Troop 175’s first visit to the Okefenokee. 33 scouts spent a January weekend paddling canoes through the Okefenokee swamp where they encountered several alligators and lots and lots of Spanish moss. The boys had lots of fun and agreed it was a good idea that some scouts did an 8-mile trip and others did 16 miles. They voted to try a destination canoe trip next time.
