Boy Scout Troop 667 recently completed a 50-mile trans-Sierra backpacking trip from Mammoth Lakes to Yosemite Valley, on the John Muir Trail in the Ansel Adams Wilderness.

During the 6 days, 667 crossed 4 mountain passes, backpacked 50 miles, climbed Yosemite’s famed Half Dome, and reached a height of 11,000 feet at Donahue Pass.

Making the trek were Ass. Scoutmaster Brooks Ensign, Hayes Ensign, Michael Maher, Carter Andrews, Andrew Mallrich, Eric Chapelle, Todd Stone, Kedwin Chen, Troop Committee Member Patricia Maher, and Scoutmaster Greg Chapelle.

“The confidence Scouts have built in achieving a difficult task will carry them through other challenges that they will face in the future,”explained Gregory Chapelle.
