For the summer of 2019, Troop 344 sent one crew of 12 to the Philmont High Adventure Scout Ranch.  The crew hiked 85 miles over 10 days exploring the rugged North country and the vast Valle Vidal on this strenuous trek.  The crew experienced historic Chase Ranch, rock climbing at Chase Cow Camp, saw petroglyphs and helped construct a trail at Indian Writings before heading to the Valle Vidal.  Passing through Carson National Forest the crew saw ponderosa pines before finishing the day with a four-mile mountain bike excursion. After passing through Wilson Mesa the pinnacle of the trek was climbing Baldy Mountain at just over 12,000 feet.  The trek was finished by exploring an abandoned mine and spar pole climbing. At the conclusion of the trek, a well-deserved root beer was enjoyed at the Ponil Cantena before heading back to base camp.  On the last day before boarding the train home, the crew was able to visit the National Scouting Museum located at Philmont.
