Compare 2018 Trek 19 to 2017 Trek 19


2018 description: 'Your crew will climb mountains, shoot guns, overcome challenges, and enjoy the serene wilderness on this program packed trek in Philmont’s South, Central, and North Country. Hike over Lovers Leap and rugged Urraca Mesa where you will participate in challenge events that will help your crew work together for the duration of your trek. Enjoy the evening campfire filled with ghost stories, music, and legends of the Santa Fe Trail. Be sure to wake up early and watch the sunrise from Inspiration Point. You will then visit the Continental Tie & Lumber Company at Crater Lake for spar pole climbing and their Company Meeting Campfire. Be sure to hike over Trail Peak and check out the wreckage of a B-24 bomber that crashed while on a training mission in 1942. At Beaubien, enjoy branding, eating a chuckwagon dinner, taking part in a cowboy campfire, and riding horses down beautiful Bonito Canyon. Hike the highline over beautiful Bonito Peak and Big Red to Comanche Peak Camp. Take in the view from the far western side of Mt. Phillips before descending into the North Fork Cimarroncito Canyon. At Cyphers Mine, you'll step back in time and learn to blacksmith with Charlie Cyphers' team of miners. Visit Mr. Phillips' Hunting Lodge before enjoying the view at Window Rock. Work on a trail construction project with the Conservation Department and enjoy beautiful Hidden Valley. Camp at Ute Springs before your crew reloads and fires your own shotgun shells at Harlan. Burro racing at Harlan and rock climbing and rappelling at Dean Cow will cap off an incredible Philmont expedition! Next stop... Base Camp!'
