Pequea, a beautiful place to be camping, hiking, and being there. It was a very nice place to be. The neighborhood in the wooded area was nice and full of vegetation. It was by a river and the people who lived there were nice. Barely any trash laying around. The troop and I went on a long hiking trip. I was one of their leaders for a little while. We had to cross a small stream. Which I always love to cross them. It was very peaceful and quiet. The only thing I heard where the voices of some kids, their footsteps, and some cars that passed by us. On the hike we started going uphill. It was tiring, but we all managed to get up to the top of the hill without any complaints. On the way to the top we came across a cave. It was nature’s air conditioning. Very, VERY cool air flowed out of it, Cooling all us hikers down. It was like a small slanted slit in the mountain. It actually was a small slit in the mountain. We kept on hiking up and the sights where true beauty. But then we got to the top and wow... just wow. We were at the top and at the cliff of the mountain and the view over the river was beautiful. I said "It's just like what you'd see in a brochure." That's how awesome the view was. Breathtaking. We had our lunch on the rock. We had PB&J. But we had it on bagels. I thought that was interesting. It also tasted nice. So after we had our lunch and before we went back down we had our picture taken with our parents or an older scout. On our way down we did not skip the cave. Why would we? It's natures air conditioning and it's a cave.
What do us boy scouts do? GO IN THE CAVE OBVIOUSLY. The entrance was what I said before: A small slit in the mountain. We go inside, and we feel, rocks and cold, moist, air. We all had the older scouts for a guide. We couldn't go everywhere in the cave, but we went to a lot of places in the cave. Still, we had fun! We were in the cave for at least 1 hour and 30 minutes. On the way back to camp we went back through the lovely neighborhood. And back to our campsite. It was clearly one of the best camping trip I've ever been on
