Angel Island 2017

Last weekend, Troop 14 landed on Angel Island, in the San Francisco Bay for a camping outing, and to do a service project. And mostly we wanted to soak in the beautiful views. If you have never been to Angel Island, it is must when exploring the Bay Area. We took the Ferry from Tiburon, although you can also get there from San Francisco's Ferry Building. The island has lots of history, from the Fort McDowell to the Asian Immigration Station. It was known as Elis Island of the West, though it came with the sinister twist of the Chinese Exclusion Act. During the cold war, the island provided a last line defense through a battery of Nike missiles.  Here are a few memories from the past weekend:

We moved in place a Civil War era cannon

We erected civil war era tents for next weekends' Civil War Days.
