Compare 2019 Trek 34 to 2018 Trek -1


2019 description: 'Embarking on this journey will test your crew’s physical and teamwork strength. with challenge events at the beginning and end of your trek will show your team’s growth over the duration. Your Ranger will first take you through the old west camp of Ponil to arrive at Sioux trail camp. You’ll then follow the Middle Ponil Creek upstream before a gradual assent to Dan Beard and the initial challenge events assessment. Lessons learned at Dan Beard will be crucial for navigating through the vast Valle Vidal. From Iris Park to Ring Place and Middle Ponil to Upper Greenwood, you will have opportunities to explore the vast beauty of the Valle Vidal. Explore the vast cosmic terrain at Ring Place after working together on your conservation project. Make your way through Windy Gap to your layover destination at Middle Ponil Low Impact Camp. Take a day to ascend the celestial plane of a nearby mountain! In June, climb Ash Mountain and in July and August, climb Little Costilla or Ash Mountain…or both! (Little Costilla is closed in June for elk calving season.) At the top, peer down and meditate upon the Earth below. Clarity of purpose will be needed as the path to French Henry is long and rugged but allows for the conquest of Philmont’s iconic Mount Baldy. Then, like the miners of times long gone, you will feel the canyon closing in as you descend into French Henry and experience the exciting mining history first hand. From this isolated location, take the short hike around Baldy’s eastern flank and enjoy the hustle and bustle of Philmont’s north country population center, Baldy Town. You’ll want to linger and enjoy the amenities but it will be important to move on to Head of Dean, and witness glorious vistas along the way. The staff there will then facilitate your ‘final exam’ of challenge events. Finally, make your way to Upper Dean Cow for one last night of timeless reflection among the giants, and an opportunity to try your hand at 12 ga. Shotgun shooting at Santa Claus. If your crew is highly motivated, as most are on their final morning, head down to the Ponil Cantina early for refreshments at the cantina. Enjoy tall tales and a cold root beer with patrons from all walks of Philmont before hiking to the Ponil Trailhead to hop on the bus that delivers you safely back to Base Camp.'
