Compare 2009 Trek 4 to 2008 Trek 4

2009 description: 'Breathtaking mountain vistas and cool rushing streams await your crew as you trek Philmont's spectacular south and central country. Weld your crew together as you enjoy challenge events at Urraca. Relive the old days of the New Mexico logging, homesteading, mountain men, gold miners and cowboys as you visit five of Philmont's living history camps where the costumed staff share their interpretive skills with your crew. Then hike into base camp over the Tooth of Time.'

2008 description: 'This 55 mile trek follows rushing steams, hiking your crew through green mountain meadows, traverses lofty peaks and ridges, across Philmont’s south and central country. You will learn search and rescue at Carson Meadows, your crew's first staffed camp; Fly tying and fishing, Jicarilla Apache life, 3 dimensional archery and black powder shooting are early features of this trek. After hiking over Mt. Phillips (11,711’), pan for gold and enjoy the “stomp” at Cyphers Mine. Day 10 finds your crew at Cimarroncito for rock climbing and environmental awareness, before you hike into Base Camp over the Tooth of Time.'
