Neither predicted rain nor below seasonal temperatures could keep Scouts from  Troop 22 in Knoxville and 2044 in Elkland from completing the Williamson Road District’s 20  mile Pine Creek Trail hike on Saturday, Oct. 13. Around noon the clouds disappeared, skies cleared, and the Scouts proceeded down the trail under beautiful autumnal weather.

Tom Miller, trail master, was skeptical about the weather at 7 a.m. as the scouts embarked from the Ansonia beginning point. James Biery, a physician’s assistant and Eagle scout, accompanied the trekkers along their journey to keep a close watch for medical situations. Chris Theurich, Williamson Road District Executive, provided water and safety checks where the trail crossed road intersections.

The local scouts were accompanied by leaders: Pat Harding, Scoutmaster  (Troop 22), Dee Jay Swan, Assistant Scoutmaster (Troop 2044) and Andy Costley, parent (Troop 2044).
