Boy Scout Troop 33 of DeKalb enjoyed a kayak trip to the Little Miami River of southern Ohio. Forested banks with giant trees provided a green canopy above them as clear waters brought Scouts floating past turtles sunning on logs, birds darting through trees, and even a water snake.
Besides beauty, nature also brought them a generous amount of rain – not once, but four times. But even a hard downpour wasn't enough to dampen the Scouts' spirits.
The boys camped at Caesar Creek State Park and visited the National Museum of the United States Air Force, located in Dayton. At one of the world’s largest aviation museums, Scouts saw historic planes from the early days of aviation to the giant aircraft of recent times.
