My Locale Conrad Stoll hasn't told us about their geographical region yet.
About Me I started backpacking in the boy scouts more than 10 years ago. In 2001 and 2003 I went to Philmont as a trekker, and in 2003 I also participated in a 21 day program called Rayado. After that I spent a lot of time hiking everywhere I could around Texas and New Mexico, including nearly a dozen trips to Big Bend and Guadalupe Mountains. In 2007 and 2008 I returned to Philmont as a Ranger and Rayado Ranger. In 2009 I returned again as a Ranger Trainer.

Colorado Bend SP
I just spent the weekend at Colorado Bend and I was surprised to find this there: It's got some pretty good trails and some neat sites. Almost everyone at the park camps by the river, so ...

Hydration
I couldn't agree more with the poster who mentioned that 0.5L isn't enough for most people to be carrying at a given time at Philmont. I think 2L is probably appropriate. It's still e...
