2017 description: 'If your crew enjoys GPS and land navigation, this trek is for you! Test your navigation skills on Ted Turner’s Vermejo Park Ranch. Our Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Department set up a challenging course in rugged country with some of the most unique rock outcroppings and vistas that the southwest has to offer. We are challenging your crew to be the first to locate them all! Start your trek at Dean Heck Camp before bushwhacking up Slate Hill to find the geocaches. Be amazed by the rock formations. If you pay close attention, you might even find a rock with Waite Phillips' initials (WP) carved into it! Spend the night where few other crews have, at beautiful Slate Hill Heck Camp. Log your findings with the Harlan staff before learning to reload and shoot your own 12 gauge shells. Work on a trail project with the Conservation Department on your way to Lost Gap. Next, hike through Hidden Valley and by Window Rock to Mr. Phillips' Hunting Lodge. At Cyphers Mine, you will explore Charlie Cyphers' mine and be entertained at The Stomp. Wake up early and fill your water bottles before you ascend Mt. Phillips. The hike will be tough, but viewing Wheeler Peak and the Moreno Valley is something that your crew will never forget. Tomahawks and booming .50 caliber muzzle loading rifles await your crew at Clear Creek. From there, camp at beautiful Bear Canyon and fish the banks of the Rayado Creek, just as Mr. Phillips enjoyed, at Fish Camp. Enjoy hiking down Rayado Canyon and help the staff at Carson Meadows with an important search and rescue mission. Get an early start to rock climb and rappel at Miners park before your final challenge… Tooth of Time!'
