When you opened up the November-December Scouting to page 42 and saw the photo
for our “Where Am I?” reader contest, did you recognize the inverted boot
kicking its way toward the Texas sky?
We received more than 700 responses, but only 133 of them
correctly told us the location: Boot Canyon in Big Bend National Park (we also
accepted nearby “Boot Spring”).
From those correct entries, we used a random number
generator to pick the winner: assistant Scoutmaster Gregory Schadt, response No. 36, of Troop 380 in Arlington, Tex.
Gregory told us that he had hiked Boot Springs Trail in 1975
to hear and see birds native to the area. Twenty-five years later, his memory
of the location paid off.
As our winner, Gregory earned a $100 gift card to the BSA
Supply Group. He can use that to stock up Scouting gear for a repeat trip to
Big Bend—or wherever life’s adventure takes him. Congratulations, Gregory!
