Devil’s Backbone – Intro to Philmont 2013

Time to get ready for our Troop’s High Adventure trip to Philmont this summer.  As part of the preparation, the boys are engaging in personal fitness routines on their own as well as a planned hike each month designed to get boys and adults in shape for this great hiking trip.  This month’s trip was to the Devil’s Backbone.  The boys are beginning these planning hikes with 20 lb. packs.  The weight of the backpacks will gradually be increased to match the planned weight of the packs when we head to Philmont.  Great job scouts!  Our trip was 5.05 miles long with an elevation gain of 500 ft.  A great start to these monthly hikes!
