Slide of the Month Extra-Philmont Clarks Fork

 May 2023

Time to make: 3 hours

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design:  Philmont / Bill Macfarlane

Clarks Fork is a living western history camp that is usually very busy as crews both beginning and ending their treks. It features horseback riding, steer roping practice, branding, great campfire program, and best of all (if you on the last day or two of your trek) the chuckwagon dinner. 

Carved from pallet pine, this was a difficult slide for me because of the angles the cowboy hat and boots don't look right to me. Painted with hobby paints and  lettered with paint pens for a rustic look. A couple of coats of poly finish it off.
