The Orting Boy Scout Troop 533 completed a 65 mile hike in the Pasayten Wilderness. The Scouts departed on August 6th and returned on the 11th. Eleven Scouts and 3 leaders took part in the hike. Some of the scouts hiked to the top of Windy Peak while the entire group hiked through the Horseshoe Basin, Tungsten Mine area and Cathedral Lakes areas. While at the Tungsten Mine the scouts assisted in cleaning the historic cabins. A fun yet challenging experience was had by all.
