Scouts are prepared for cold weather camping by wearing proper clothing in layers. It was not as cold as previous trips, but the wind made it feel colder than is actually was. We had good  weather for the middle of December.

Big Lake (actual name) is the largest natural made lake in the state of Missouri.  It was carved out by the Missouri River channel and then closed off as the channel moved, leaving the lake. This state park is close to the Wildlife Preserve.

The Squaw Creek Wildlife Reserve is a place  for migrating birds. This is a small portion of the Snow Geese that had stopped on 
their way south. The  presence of these birds bring American Bald Eagles to this natural food source. We saw many during our tour through the park.
