Viewing Rock, Goshen Virginia

A traditional hike for us is always to Viewing Rock. This outcrop overlooks the majestic Lake Merriweather. Its a great two mile hike pretty much straight up. Just enough challenge for our youngest scouts....and our more seasoned older leaders. The reward is worth the effort.

Shots like these remind me of the classic Norman Rockwell Scouting Artworks. Brings a tear to my eye when I watch. No kidding!

My tent by week's end......a mess.


  1. I worked at Goshen's at Marriott '94-'96. Your pictures are awsome. Love the one from viewing rock and the boat by the lake.

  2. Thanks for your kind comments. I now have three boys in scouts with many years of Goshen ahead of me. I love that place. You can see more Goshen pics at

    Thanks for all you did and do for scouting.
