CHESTERTON | Cub Scout Pack 773 took advantage of a beautiful fall day on Oct. 12 to hike Trail 7 and 4 at the Indiana Dunes State Park.

For many of the Scouts it was their first time hiking. The Scouts learned how to hike as a pack and many of the Leave No Trace guidelines. Several of the Scouts stayed on to listen to storytellers of Northwest Indiana tell some spooky stories and then took a night hike using their flashlights. Scouts will earn hike miles for their efforts.

The Pack meets at Annunciata parish on Chicago's East Side.
