My son climbed Rocky Mountain High Adventure Base in 2014 with the Boy Scouts and his father. He was 13 years old and had previously hiked Hermit’s Peak in New Mexico. This easy-going, athletic and introspective teenager shared his hiking experience with me. We did this interview facetiously because of his young age and also because he is a boy who likes to keep things verbally brief! (except for the part when he describes the food-ha!)

Describe the perfect Scout meal.
MREs! = meal ready to eat. They are the best; so good! It’s a meal you can cook in two minutes. It comes with hot chocolate, peanut butter dips with crackers, goldfish, brownies and dessert options. It’s a main meal that’s calorie-packed. It has a chemical reaction with water and heats up food you want to eat in a manner of a minute.
Describe the physical terrain and climate.
