End of the trail


Seventeen Boy Scouts and eight adult leaders from La Jolla Boy Scout Troop 506 recently completed a 10-day high-adventure trek through rugged New Mexico wilderness at Philmont Scout Ranch. They trained for more than six months before tackling the trails, which covered more than 80 miles on the 137,000-acre ranch in northern New Mexico. Hikers mugging for the camera at the end of their trek are, from left, Scoutmaster Clark Smith, James Wigle, Carter Smith, Daniel Marks, Ronnie Calabrese, Wade Geissel, Andrew Barna, Chic Barna.
