Sioux Creek (9/10/22-9/11/22)
Siouxon Creek was our most recent outing and quite a pleasant one at that. It was about a four-mile hike from the parking lot to our campsite, a nice distance. We got to experience different biomes throughout the forest. Our campsite was right next to the creek, we got to look at all different kinds of rocks on the shore. We then explored around the campsite, found lots of cool spots, and did some fun hikes. A couple scouts went up to a waterfall around a mile away from camp which was pretty cool. After those scouts returned, we cooked some Mountain House and filtered some river water to go with. Later on, we completed a fairly steep hike with a few scouts up on the Horseshoe Ridge Trail which took us 1000 feet up in about a quarter mile length. Very steep and really fun. We then got back very tired and almost all of us fell right asleep in our tents. The next morning, we ate breakfast, packed up our things, and hiked back. Overall a great overnight trip to Siouxon Creek.
