107 Miles Completed in New Mexico

We have returned from Philmont Scout Ranch, where we did itinerary 34 ~ the most difficult trek.  The weather was perfect for the most part and the bugs minimal.  In the 107 miles, we made the summits of Baldy, Tooth of Time and Mt. Phillips.  Undoubtedly, I would do it again!  Here my son and I are sitting on top of Mt. Baldy.

    Absolutely beautiful pictures! And I’m sure they pale in comparison to the memories you have of the trek. Congratulations- I know you trained hard and prepared well for the trip.
