Troop 120 canoe down the Niangua River

Troop 120 traveled south of Lebanon to start a canoe trip on the twisting Niangua River which would cover 34 miles through the Ozark hills. All of the equipment needed for a camping trip along the river was loaded aboard the canoes at the Moon Valley Access and the Scouts pushed off their heavily laden canoes.
Everyone enjoyed swimming in the refreshing spring fed waters and squirting each other with water guns along the river route. The Scouts were impressed on how cold and clear the water was that came out of the Bennett and Big Blue Springs. Even though it rained on the second day of the trip, everyone kept up their high Scout Spirits. The next outing for the Troop is a creek hike through the Burris Fork creek with a hot dog roast at the end.
