I've been working at Philmont for around twenty days so far this summer and have been enjoying every minute of it. I've had the opportunity to paint, train, take out a crew, and make new friends.
This year I was selected to be a Rayado ranger, an exciting experience. I've been training for the past 10 days and will leave tomorrow to lead a 21 day trek with partner ranger.
This is one of the most rewarding experiences to be had in the Ranger department, and I am looking forward to every minute of it. My partner and I have bonded well, our trip has been planned, and we are ready to get on the trail. Even as I write, Rayado participants are arriving to begin their adventure, and boy, do we have something great planned for them.
