2021 description: 'This Valle Vidal itinerary will enable you to see an incredible assortment of wildlife, enormous grass filled vegas, gorgeous ponderosa pine stands, and the rugged mountains North of Philmont. Start off by seeing the world’s first confirmed T-Rex track, which was found in the North Ponil Canyon. Tour the fascinating petroglyphs left by the Ancestral Puebloan people at Indian Writings. From there, head up to Metcalf Station and on to Cook Canyon for the night. Enjoy a long journey through the Valle Vidal as you hike up through Dan Beard to get to Seally Canyon. Off to Ring Place the next morning, where you will complete your conservation project, then head to Whiteman Vega, where you will be treated to a mountain bike ride on one of New Mexico's best mountain biking trails. The next leg of your journey takes you to Iris Park for some rest before heading South the next day towards Philmont and camping at Upper Greenwood for the night. Be ready for a big day, as you hike towards Copper Park, with a side hike to summit Philmont’s tallest peak, Baldy Mountain. While on top, review all of the ground you covered in the Valle from Baldy Mountain! If you still have time after your Baldy Summit, take a side hike to French Henry to explore Lucien Maxwell’s best gold producing Aztec Mine. Your next day will allow you to make a quick stop at historic Baldy Town before heading to the Mountain Man Rendezvous at Miranda. Pick up your burro and learn to pack him properly before heading to Pueblano for some spar pole climbing and railroad tie making with the loggers of the Continental Tie & Lumber Co. Your crew is sure to be entertained at their Company Meeting Campfire that night. Continue on to Ponil for Cowboy Action Shooting, branding, roping, horse rides a chuckwagon dinner, and a Cantina Show. Reflect on your trip as you load the bus at the Ponil Trailhead and head back to Base Camp.'
