2017 description: 'This program intense trek follows mountain streams, discovers mountain meadows, and traverses peaks and mesas across Philmont's South Country.

Be sure to get plenty of rest and wake up early to watch the sunrise at Inspiration Point. From there, hike west towards Fowler Mesa, Bonito Canyon, and Lookout Meadow.

Your next destination is where the canyon divides at Fish Camp.

From there, enjoy the cool crisp hike down beautiful North Fork Urraca Creek before camping for the night. Be sure to get plenty of rest as your last challenge awaits… the Tooth of Time! Climb the Tooth and hike into Base Camp via the Tooth Ridge Trail as you reflect on your successful journey.'
