Summer Camp 2012 Backpacking Pacos Packers - 35 +/- mile hike

Our Tres Ritos Boy Scout Summer Camp "Pacos Packers" experience wasn't like some of the others, there was a lot more walking and a lot less talking. We got to enjoy more of New Mexico than the other boys on a week long hike on a trail called pecos packers. The one we went on was a 38 mile hike through the glorious mountain ranges. We got to see fine elk trails and beautiful views. One great view, was the scenery from the top of Jicarita, a rocky climb that was worth the trouble. The food, oh the food, was horrific. Every meal was either powder or a chunky mess. The crackers that we used for the pb&j and other sandwiches were rock solid. Putting that aside though, it was all a great experience and we would recommend it to all the scouters that are going to be able to do it in the future.
