Crew Leader Ben called to say they had arrived in Base Camp this morning! Had a MOST INCREDIBLE time....felt great to get a shower and some food . He spoke non-stop about their Great Philmont Adventure - everything from rock climbing, blacksmithing, horse riding, the most delicious glass of cold Root Beer EVER, conservation project, ....and well on and on.....AND fellow crewman Cody, who is sometimes somewhat reserved in his words of enthusiasm, told me that "yeah, it was really fun - in fact, it really was an AWESOME experience!"
