Mount Monadnock - Around the first weekend of November, Troop 146 comes a knocking...Mt Monadnock'ing, that is. This year 22 brave scouts and adults traveled to Jaffrey, New Hampshire to test out their camping gear in below freezing temperatures and hike one of the most traveled paths in New England. On a clear day, you can see more than just fall foliage, but buildings in Boston (70 miles) and Mt Washington (200+ miles). Wowz'ahs!!
