Hiking on the Rio Grande
I was again asked today to help Team and Crew 422 in their preparations for Philmont this summer. They hiked down the blue dot trail from the overlook down to the Rio Grande, along the river to the Red Dot trail and back up the cliff side. they had several stations along the way in which they did various things like team skis and woofle ball.
I think one of them ot lost along the way and they spent about 45 minutes looking for him. He is ok and they did the right thing.
I had a station for them in which they were to build a fire. I asked them to do it with one match and they did. Kudoos to Rob who led the effort. They then roasted hot dogs and marshmallows for lunch. They were headed to a cave to do some spelunking when I left.
