slept:4.5 weight:171.8lbs (rest day)

Home... Left Cimmaron, NM at 7:30am MDT yesterday and after a long bus ride, long airport wait, flight delays and a medical emergency on the plane during deplaning at BDL finally got into the terminal and claimed baggage at 2:30am EDT. Will inevitably be some napping going down today. Will backfill the log as time permits.

But all in all, excellent rogaine training....

Hiking 7:00:00 [3] 11.18 mi (37:34 / mi) +700m 31:27 / mi

Up at 12:45am, broke camp & hit trail by 2am. Up to Schaeffers Pass and then summit of Schaeffers Peak. Hung out for a few hours and watched the nearly full moon set in the west, then daybreak over the plains to the east. Then in down Tooth Ridge to the Tooth of Time where I waited at the base with packs to avoid having to waste time pulling out smellables and hanging bear bags. Boys did the rock scramble up and back in 45 minutes. Mileage includes that, even though I didn't do it myself. Then began the long, switch backed power march down Tooth Ridge and back into Philmont Basecamp at 10:30am. Called in pizza delivery for lunch. Quickly consumed...

Hiking 3:30:00 [3] 7.13 mi (29:27 / mi)

Short day. Up through Hidden Valley to Window Rock, down to Hunting Lodge and out to Clark's Fork. Dry camp this evening so another lunch/dinner flip so we could conserve water as its dry all the way out to Base Camp tomorrow. Then up to Upper Clark's Fork camp for an early bedtime.

Hiking 5:00:00 [3] 10.75 mi (27:54 / mi)

Harlan around Deer Mesa and up to Ute Gulch commissary for food pickup, then over to Cimmaroncito staff camp for some rock climbing & rappelling in the afternoon, and bouldering in the evening. Active nuisance bear in area so extra bear precautions. And showers....

Hiking 5:00:00 [3] 11.88 mi (25:16 / mi)

Blackjack to Harlan via Bear Canyon, Cimmaron River & Visto Grande camps. Another good walking day arriving at Harlan @ 11:30, surprising the rangers there as most arrivals from Blackjack apparently stumbled in around 4 or 5, usually via the equal distance but hotter Turkey Canyon route.

Shotgun reloading, skeet shooting & burro racing were the order of the day since we were in early.

Hiking 4:30:00 [3] 9.5 mi (28:25 / mi)

Recovery day. Maxwell back up to Head of Dean (sans burro) where boys elected to stop to rest & play games (basketball & badminton). Then left at 10:30 headed down Dean Canyon. Got pretty warm by the time we got to New Dean so we found a good tree to hang under for a few hours. Had a water source so we elected to cook dinner early and eat lunch later since our evening camp was likely to be dry. Then around 4:30 headed up towards Blackjack for the night.

Got to Blackjack to find a very new rainwater collection tank that was 3/4 full - probably 300 gallons. Except the wizard that installed it put the spigot level with the top of the tank and, being a gravity feed system, nothing came out. Not having a handy pipe wrench nor a convenient siphon it wound up being a dry camp after all...
