2016 Canoe Trip Report

Troop 111 had a successful and fun canoe trip in August.  Our original plan was to cover 12 miles of the Potomac River.  Thanks to a breezy headwind and a few other factors, we stopped at the Point of Rocks landing after covering 6 miles (although some of us zigzagged enough to paddle closer to 7), which helped make it a great, relaxing trip.  The river was beautiful, and the water was perfect for staying cool.  Some of the OG’s caught fish, and some of the boys caught a glimpse of a water snake.  We stopped on a rock island for lunch, and the Troop cleaned up some trash along the way.
