|Base camp from tooth of time|
Last trek, Charlie's crew climbed the Tooth for sunrise and my crew watched sunrise from the ridge next to camp, since we had climbed the Tooth the night before. The trail down to Base Camp is almost all downhill, but most of it is in the sun, and the trail switches back and forth at times going over the ridge away from base Camp. Until today we have traveled as separate crews, but today will we travel as Troop 50, all together. We will all wear our Troop 50 T-shirts today, and even through we've been 10 days on the trail we won't look quite so dirty.

The Philmont Arrowheads will be handed out in the evening before the Chapel services at 7pm, a good time to thank God for allowing us the opportunity of enjoying his Creation. The closing campfire will be special, with everyone happy with a real sense of accomplishment. Then the camp staff will wow us with a great show of goofy songs, great skits, and a slide show. Last trek there was skit about a mini bear attack that had everyone in stitches. There will be questions like "How come when the Ranger was with us we only hiked 1 to 2 miles a day? But on the day the Ranger leaves, the crew hiked a dozen miles!!!!"
