It's refreshing to see Boy Scouts that are living up to their ideals :)

Centerville, UT

Hmmm. I don't expect to see the SL Trib pick this story up anytime soon.

"Leave no trace" camping takes on a different meaning when the Boy Scouts take on a project like this.

Thank you for the service!

This is the sort of project scouts should be involved in, but it all boils down to competent leadership. Thanks to this excellent scoutmaster and some obviously awesome scouts. Maybe you could teach the goblin topplers from Highland a thing or two.

Great work young men and leaders. You nailed it!

Park City, UT

How do we educate people who visit the red-rock area that it is not cool to gouge your name in sandstone slot canyons, etc. We visit a beautiful slot canyon at Lake Powell each year and it is disheartening to see names gouged out in the sandstone all the way up the canyon. Some people just don't get it.

Nice work. That's what scouting is all about.

American Fork, UT

Awesome. All of these boys will probably grow up now with an increased respect for our natural world. Kudos to the scout leader for being a leader.

I echo the sentiments above regarding being pleased that true Scouting is being displayed here. From this one act (and hopefully more like it), it is possible that the young men that are taking part in this clean up will grow up to be true men. Selfless, honorable, and believers of doing good to those around them.

Well done boys! Too bad they couldn't replace the rock that the scout masters tumbled in Goblin Valley.

Las Vegas, NV

I think the numbers 3, 4, 5, & 11 just about sum it up "...helpful, friendly, courteous...clean". Way to represent Scouts!

And did you notice the part about how vandalism and trash has exploded in the area since motorized travel has been reinstated there? Too often is seems that easy, motorized access to a beautiful place is an invitation for lazy people to bring stupidity with them on a campout.

Hurrah for these scouts and their leaders. I'll bet none of them become members of the Legion of Stupid Slobs when they grow up and begin using our outdoors.
