Slide of the Month Extra: Philmont Black Mountain

  May 2024

  Time to make: 3 hours

  Finishing: 1 hour
  Original design:  Philmont/Bill Macfarlane

Black Mountain camp is a staffed camp where staffer portray soldiers at a post Civil War outpost. The camp features black powder shooting and blacksmithing along with the stories of the men of the outpost.
The trail leading to Black Mountain camp is also know as the third toughest hike in the entire state.

I carved this from a thick piece of maple and painted it with hobby paints. The lettering was done with waterslide paper and a couple of coats of poly finish the slide off.
