So I work at Philmont Scout Ranch. It’s a high adventure base run by the Boy Scouts. To give you an idea of how big of an operation it is here are some quick facts. 350 campers arrive everyday with 350 coming off the trail everyday. Philmont has a budget of $20 million, employs about 1,000 people, over about 214 square miles Philmont owns. I work for News and Photo Service. The first photo is a typical sunset view from my tent. The next is burros at Harlan. Then a couple shots from Rayado. The man in the hat is John Carson, Kit Carson’s great-great-nephew. I haven’t been taking very many photos yet on my own time while I battling a cold but I plan to.
