Sacramento Delta, May 5
By Aaron

We had a fantastic time at Cece's Island. The main purpose of the trip was to develop our kayaking skills. We learned how to effectively control, maneuver, and recover while in a kayak. We also refreshed our canoe recovery techniques. Afterwards we went tubing behind a motor boat and had a wonderful time enjoying the company of Crew 27.

Crystal Springs Reservior Hike, April 12
By Pat

Not many people have hiked in the Crystal Springs watershed, which is normally closed to the public, so this hike was extra special. We hiked a little over 8 miles on the Fifield-Cahill Ridge with a volunteer docent. Although there were occasional nice views, the best part was the tree lined trail and the many wild flowers. All had good time enjoying nature and each other's company.

Treasure Hunt, March 14

Ski Trip to Bear Valley, Feb. 28
By Ryan T.

Jingle bells, Jingle bells,
Jingle all the way,
We went up early and we got back late,
But boy, we had a blast!
Dashing through the snow,
On a snow board and some skis,
We crashed in to the trees,
And then we bruised our knees,
But then we got back up,
And drank out of our cup,
Laughing back towards home, Aye!
Jingle bells, Jingle bells, Jingle all the way,
We went up early and we got back late
But boooooooy, We haaaaaaaad

Edgewood Park Potluck Picnic and Hike, Jan. 25
By Cece

The Edgewood hike was a very exciting experience. As a group we ate a delicious potluck lunch. It was very filling and allowed us to prepare ourselves for the interesting hike ahead of us. On the hike we explored several trails which brought us to the top of a mountain that looked out on the city below. It was all very breath taking.

Elephant Seal Tour, Jan. 3
By Pat

The weather was perfect for this outing and the scenery was beautiful. We barely missed seeing two bulls fighting over a pond, but by the time we got there the winner was just taking possesion. We saw bulls chasing each other and moms with their calves, mostly from a distance.

After the tour, we went down to a lovely beach, which was a highlight for many.
