Philmont Crew Backpacking at Hill Country SNA 25-27 Mar

Posted on Mar 28 2022 - 11:56pm

The Philmont Crew 625 K Backpacked through Hill Country State Natural Area from 25-27 Mar in preparation for their summer trip to Philmont.  We started out on Friday night and hiked to the Wilderness primitive area.   Set up camp in the dark. The next morning we continued our trek around the park to get to the Chaquita Falls primitive area.  The next morning we did a loop to the south to complete our 15 miles for the weekend and earn one of the backpacking merit badge requirements.   The weather was great with no rain and highs in the 80s with lows in the 40s.  The dry climate mimics Philmont Ranch.  We worked through some boot and pack issues.  Learned how much water to carry and how to navigate better!  Overall, the crew looks pretty ready for the summer adventure and looking forward to our final practice weekend in May at Lake Georgetown.
