This excellent itinerary traverses the backbone of Philmont - from the Rayado country at Old Abreu to the top of Mt. Baldy, Philmont's highest peak at 12,441 feet. Along the way, take time to savor the flavor of the "old West" at the Continental Tie & Lumber Co. program at Crater Lake Camp. Enjoy shotgun shooting and burro racing at Harlan as you head across the Cimarron River for more fun. Heading up into the Baldy Mining district, be sure to visit the Mountain Man Rendezvous. Catch gold fever at French Henry's Aztec Mine, then finish with a cool glass of root beer at the Ponil Cantina.
