The Troop 799 Philmont crew went on a shakedown hike on Priest Mountain in Nelson County, Virginia. A crew of five Scouts and three adults backpacked up the mountain and camped at the top among some other Boy Scout Troops making the hike on a beautiful day for hiking. Everyone ate freeze dried food and had fun building a campfire. The next morning was a much easier hike downhill and of course was finished off by a visit to Five Guys on the way home. Overall it was a great hike with great weather and great views.
