    This weekend, as I was out at the Missouri River Recreation Area for Youth near Fort Peck Dam photographing and interviewing the latest crop of Boy Scouts, I was suddenly 12-years-old again and a Boy Scout myself. It was in the mid- to late-1990s when I was in Troop 64 back in Arizona. My patrol was "The Angry Beavers." Unfortunately, the Troop no longer exists except in the memories of those who were there. There were so many memories made in my three to four years in Troop 64. When I first... Full story
