Troop 109 was once again honored to be on the cover of a national Scouting magazine. The October 2016 issue of Boy”s Life magazine features 109’s spectacular outing to Arizona’s Painted Desert. This six page feature spread showcases the Mars-like terrain of Arizona’s famous National Park. When the folks at BSA heard about our trip, they sent Garth Dowling, senior photographer for Boy’s Life and Scouting Magazine along for the trip. This trip was one for the record books and one we’ll never forget.
This was not Troop 109’s first appearance on the cover of a national BSA publication. In 2008, a Scouting Magazine editor and photographer accompanied us as we explored a rarely seen cave system in southern Arizona.
Here’s the pages from Boy’s Life.
