2017 description: 'This program packed itinerary will give you all sorts of exciting options as you navigate through Philmont’s gorgeous Central and South Countries. At Harlan, your crew will learn how to reload shotgun shells before practicing their marksmanship at a scenic shooting range. From there, try several new climbing routes at Cimarroncito before side hiking Hidden Valley and working on a trail project with the Conservation Department. Enjoy the view from Window Rock and tour Mr. Phillips' Hunting Lodge on your way back to Cimarroncito. Depending on the weather, your crew may then have an opportunity to side hike the Tooth of Time from Shaefers Pass. Next, hike the lush North Fork Urraca Creek to Black Mountain Camp. Post-Civil War Union Soldiers will welcome your crew and share their knowledge of living on the western frontier. You'll shoot .58 caliber muzzle loading rifles and learn blacksmithing skills that were vital for the time period. Your crew will then head to Beaubien for horse rides, a chuckwagon dinner, and cowboy campfire. Take the opportunity to side hike to Fish Camp on your layover day and leave no questions unanswered as to why Mr. Phillips loved to spend time on the banks of the Rayado and Agua Fria. Hike over Trail Peak to Crater Lake for spar pole climbing, and camp at serene Bear Caves for the night. Enjoy the view from Aguila and cap off your trek with a wonderful Mexican dinner and root beer at Abreu. Hike through Zastrow for your final geocaching challenge. Next stop… Base Camp!'
