2020 description: 'Take a trip back in time with this itinerary that is chock full of unique programs and relics from the past! Start your journey through this timeline after getting off the bus at the Six-Mile Trailhead for a visit to the first confirmed T-Rex track in the world. Look for other fossils and footprints as you head upstream to Indian Writings where you will tour the fascinating petroglyphs left by the Ancestral Puebloan people prior to 1300 CE and work on an archaeological dig to discover more clues of their activities on Philmont property. Your climb over Hart Peak will be rewarded with fantastic views of the Ponil Complex! Make your way down to Ponil where you will be taken back to the old west! Try your hand at branding and roping, then reward yourself with a cold root beer in the Cantina. The next step of your journey in time takes you to the early 1900s, where the loggers of the Continental Tie & Lumber Co. will teach you how to climb a spar pole and use a broad axe. End the day at their company meeting campfire and learn of the toils and struggles of the life of a logger. Make your way through Pueblano Ruins and through Ewells Park into the historical Baldy Mining district. Your final destination is Miranda, where you will be transported to 1838 and the mountain man rendezvous. Shoot muzzle loading rifles, throw tomahawks and be regaled with the many tall tales the trappers will share with you. Your journey through time is almost over as you hike down to the Maxwell Trailhead to meet your bus for your trip back to Base Cam'
