Gigantor attacks at the Bunker Hill Memorial!!! But have no fear!!... All scouts made it out safely, and enjoyed the memorial, the Old North Church, the USS Constitution (oldest commissioned warship afloat!!), and especially Quincy Market.  Other photos of the Urban Hike can be found here.  Feel free to upload yours.....
