Vedauwoo 2009 Camping Report
– Article by Jason Rice
This annual camping spot always has hidden surprises. This year we experienced “rain”. On Saturday morning, Mr. Krey, troop Climbing Instructor, reviewed the equipment and helped new scouts try on the equipment. Mr. Bender, troop Climbing Instructor, taught a Climb On Safely class to the new adults. Mr. Rice, Lead Climbing Instructor, set up the first level climb and rappel. As soon as the climbing area opened, the rain began to fall.
Generally, rain just comes and leaves. However, the clouds rolled and the fog, drizzle and rain stayed throughout the day and into the evening. Sunday morning started with fog and a light drizzle. However, God prepared a break in the gloom, and allowed us to climb & rappel through the day.
Many of the families stayed to enjoy a late night campfire. All in all, most campers had a good time. A few went home a little soggy, but at least enjoyed making the trip. Vedauwoo holds beautiful landscape and some people had to wait to actually see the rock outcrops after the clouds lifted on Sunday morning.
