On the weekend of April 22-23, the troop went backpacking in the Big South Fork. We stayed at the Charit Creek Lodge so minimal equipment was required. We met at Kern at 7:30 on Saturday morning and got to the Charit Creek Trailhead around 10:00. Were drove through heavy rain the whole way but it slacked off when we got there and only had a little drizzle on the hike to the lodge. We dropped off our equipment and headed out to hike the Twin Arches Loop around 1:00. The rain had stopped and we had a very pleasant hike. When we got back to camp, the scout hauled off some brush for their conservation service project. The rain came back with a vengeance before the scouts were done with the service project and it continued to rain until the next morning. Sunday morning we got up, had breakfast and headed back up the trail to the trailhead. Once again the rain diminished while we were on the trail. We got back to the church around 12:30 on Sunday.
