Boy Scout Troop 1437 had a great (if rainy) weekend at Conley Cabin on the PATC Vining tract. We arrived on Friday evening and hiked in the dark to arrive at the cabin around 7:30 p.m. We got a fire going, and the cabin warmed up in no time since it wasn't very cold outside. On Saturday, we went back to finish cutting a log from across the Orion trail. We got all the way through one side, but had to stop about 1/2 way through the other side because heavy rain came in. We did make it up to the Churchill Bathtub to get some water, but did not get to hike as much as I wanted because of the rain. We spent most of Saturday afternoon in, and around, the cabin because of the rain.
