In COLORADO, the hiking is fantastic, and in ALASKA, skiing belt loops abound. The Blue & Gold of CUB SCOUTSis seen in CALIFORNIA'Sblue skies and historic gold strike.

"I sure am!" said Joey. Suddenly Joey hears a loud whistle and the PARADEwas on its way. Joey stood as tall as he could, proud to be a Cub Scout. There were so many people along the streets as they MARCHED.Up ahead of him he could hear the laughter of people and he longed to know what was so funny. Joey moved toward the front of his group and stretched to see. Then without warning there was in front of him, two LEGS. That's all he saw, was two LEGS. The crowd was laughing and they became louder as Joey followed the LEGSup into the air. High up on the tallest LEGShe had ever seen was a CLOWN. Wow! The CLOWNleaned over and patted Joey on the head.
