Tour the fascinating petroglyphs left by the ancient Ancestral Puebloan people prior to 1300 CE at Indian Writings. From there, head up to Metcalf Station and on to Cook Canyon for the night. Work on a stream restoration project with the Conservation Department before hiking towards Whiteman Vega. The next morning, you will be treated to a mountain bike ride on one of New Mexico's best trails. Learn about weather forecasting at Ring Place on your way to Iris Park. Head south towards Philmont and camp at Greenwood Canyon for the night. Review all of the ground you covered in the Valle from Baldy Mountain! Visit historic Baldy Town and explore Lucien Maxwell’s best gold producing Aztec Mine at French Henry. Climb spar poles and cut railroad ties at Pueblano with the Continental Tie and Lumber Company. Your crew is sure to be entertained at their Company Meeting Campfire. Continue on to Ponil for Cowboy Action Shooting, branding, roping, a chuckwagon dinner, and a cantina show. Test your rock climbing and rappelling skills at Dean Cow. Reflect on your trip as you tour the Historic Chase Ranch. Next stop… Base Camp!'
