From June 26 to July 3, San Marco residents and members of Troop 906 traveled to Cimarron, NM and completed a 7-day backpacking trek in the backcountry of the Philmont Scout Ranch, carrying all their gear, food, and water along the way.  During the trek, the scouts traveled over 36 miles and summited 3 peaks each with an elevation greater than 9000 feet, including the iconic Tooth of Time.  Along the way, they participated in various activities including blacksmithing and horseback riding.  They also completed a conservation service project for the ranch.  In completing this trek, several of the scouts earned the Triple Crown Award for completing treks at the BSA’s 3 high adventure bases:  Sea Base, Northern Tier and Philmont. 

Led by Mike Leonard and Mark Eckels, the scouts included Emiliano Makros, Max Moorehead, Liam Leonard, Kamm Eckels, Andrew Snyder and Garrett Morgan.
