Aaron takes his scouts on a campout every third weekend. This month they got to do something really cool. Aaron took the day off on Friday and met his boys and their dads at 5:30 am to go up to the mountains and build snow caves. He said they had a blast! They spent all of Friday building the caves and then slept in them all night. He said that he and Peter (that's his assistant scout master) had the best cave. They had to...they had to impress all of the kids and their fathers! So the picture above is actually a snow palace. Most of the caves were crawling room only. It was too grandiose to actually trap any heat, but it was a warm night--just barely dipped under freezing. Me and the kids had a fun time here. We went over to our friends house (Pricilla--Peter's wife) and had dinner and let the kids play. It was a fun time!

Where did they go? How far do they have to drive to get into snow like that?

It's called Timberline. It's up on Mount Hood...about two hours away. It's where the US Olympic skiing team does some of their summer training.
