Slide of the Month Extra - Philmont Mountain Trek

 May 2022

 Time to make: 2 hours

 Finishing: 1 hour

 Original design:  Philmont / Bill Macfarlane


I had never heard of this program before now! The Philmont Mountain Trek program allows the sons and daughters of Training Center participants to have their own Philmont experience! Youth 14  (or 13 and finished the 8th grade) and not yet 21 years of age are formed into crews that are lead by Philmont Rangers. During the week long adventure, crews hike to different camps and get to try their hand at the programs there. 

A very simple slide carved from southern (pallet) pine, it features a view of the Tooth of Time from the trail. Painted with hobby paints, lettered with waterslide paper and finished off with a couple coats of poly.
