Boy Scouts from Troop 33 Hike Backcountry

Boy Scouts from Troop 33 — out of Montecito — went on a wet hike/campout earlier this month.

They hiked from Camino Cielo through Blue Canyon campground to Cottam Camp to Four Bush Flats for the night. The next day they hiked up to Camino Cielo, down the mountain to the Hot Springs Trailhead and through Montecito to the Scout House in Upper Manning Park.

Besides the reward of magnificent vistas of backcountry and coastline, the troop had a large “hero” sandwich waiting for them at the Scout House, courtesy of some troop moms.

The key message is the splendor of our backcountry is right out the backdoor!

Troop 33 is part of Los Padres Council of the Boy Scouts of America. Troop meetings are from 4 to 5:15 p.m. Sundays at the Scout House. Click here for more information.

— Dave Cantin is scoutmaster of Boy Scouts Troop 33 in Montecito.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
