Boy Scouts Brave Freezing Hike

Boy Scouts from Long Valley Troop 236, Schooley’s Mountain, braved a high temperature of 110 F on Sat., Feb. 13, at High Point State Park in Sussex. The hikers, from left, are Sam Pontier, Luke Degen, Eric Degen, Tyler Longo, Rob Maier and Chris Maier with Jim Magurie taking the picture. The High winds and low temperatures did not deter the well-prepared Scouts from enjoying the scenic vistas, observing animal tracks in the fresh snow and getting in some early season trail practice along their 7.5 mile trek. The photo is from High Point Monument, at 1,803 feet above sea level. For more information about Troop 236 please visit:
