Gallery Page 4:  The Trek Begins...

We awoke early in the morning to get ready to leave tent city.

We waited for our bus to arrive at the Philmont Welcome Center.

We began our trek at the Ponil Turnaround in northern Philmont.

After a quick review of map and compass skills we were ready to begin.

A few horse joined us at the Ponil turnaround.

Our ranger discussed sanitation knowledge inside a red roof inn.

Hi ho, hi ho, it's a 2 mile stretch of hiking we go...

Our first campsite was located at Dean's Cut-Off Camp.

Our ranger discusses more Philmont knowledge after camp was set up.

For some reason we were pretty tired after those first couple of miles of hiking.

Our camp at Dean's Cut-Off looks clean, well organized, and downright livable.

We spent the rest of the day and evening at Ponil Camp and the cantina.

A couple of guys tried their skills at playing a duet on the piano at the Ponil cantina.

The cantina was a great place to relax, play some cards, and visit with each other.

Yeah, yeah. When your advisor has a camera you know there will be a lot of pictures taken.

This was the last picture taken of the Troop 68 Scouts before they went their separate ways.
