On March 16, scouts from Troop 4 caught the first ferry boat of the morning from Tiburon to Angel Island.
It seemed to be destined as an ominous weekend as the boat cut through the thick fog and docked at Ayala Cove.
In no time, the scouts headed out to their camp site destination on the Eastern side of the Island.
Situated around 350 ft. above sea level, the Sunrise camp site had a great panorama view of the East Bay, Bay Bridge and downtown area of San Francisco.
A Sunset hike to the top of Mount Livermore (the highest spot on the Island at 788 ft.) gave the scouts a 360 degree view of the entire Bay. The Golden Gate Bridge felt close enough to touch.
Once the sun dropped below the horizon, a flashlight and head-lamp hike at a much slower pace was completed back to the camp site.
Sunday the 17 arrived with crystal clear skies and a glass like look to the bay waters.
The camp was dismantled in no time, and the scouts set off on the upper trails to complete a full circumference of the Island.
