i were unrolled and sufficient wood
j gathered for the night. The weather
I was rather cool for camping out, but
t Girl Scout is always prepared. Each
?irl took several blankets and every
one slept warm and cozy.
When old Mr. Sun peeped up over
John's Reek Saturday morning (an
impossibility until Alma Talley was
Dut under cover) he saw a busy troop
of Girl Scouts. And before he could
blink his eyes many times all camp
kapers were finished. At 10 o'clock
the girls assembled for trcop meet
ing. Then we started on a hike to the
top of John's Rock. "With Miss Fleto
Freeman in charge of the Nightingale
patrol; Mrs. Ina Rustin, the Bob-o
links: and Mr. Frank Merrill leading
the way, we started out with light
steps and a light heart. After a iong,
hard climb we reached the top of the
mountain. The view was wonderful
aVid all were ready to sit down and
rest. Of course no one was hungry
but the lunch disappeared as if by
The real trouble started when we
decided to return to camp by a dif
ferent route. We finally did find the
way back* but our honorable guide
had almost convinced us that we were
lost. Going down the steep slopes we
rolled about four-thirds of the way.
