first contact

Mt. Phillips, New Mexico
elevation 11,713 ft.
Today we received first contact from Noah's Boy Scout troop while on their hike at Philmont Scout Ranch. This is day eight of the ten day trek. Mr. Land called and left us a message from the top of Mt. Phillips. They reached that point around noon and then headed downhill to their campsite for tonight.
This photo was taken with a cell phone camera by one of the leaders. Mr. Land said that there hadn't been any injuries or accidents, and the scouts are all sleeping well, happy and having a wonderful time. All good news.
They've got two more days on the trail and will return to base camp on Tuesday. Can't wait to hear all the stories and see all the pictures when they get home!
