Jim asked about places to stay near Cimarron.
Other than the places mentioned around Cimarron, there are some others
that I know about from working there (some tips from crews).
First of all, if you will be arriving in Cimarron the night before you
normally would get there, check with Philmont. They may be able to
acommidate you in the tent cities. I stress that you check with
Philmont about the availablity. Some days, the tent cities are filled
to capacity due to incomming/outgoing mountain treks or a large number
of incomming/outgoing crews. Other times, there are a lot of empty
tents. I don't know if their is an extra charge, but it will be cheaper
than staying at the Kit Carson motel.
Second, if you will be carrying tents of you own, check with Philmont
about the availability of staying at Badger Camp. Badge camp is located
about half way up the road to the lovers leap turnaround. I was under
the impression it was for scout groups wanting to stay/camp at philmont
en route to other places. You will definitely need your own gear (tents
and such) for this.
If you are taking the scheduled bus service into Cimarron, this won't
help. If you are chartering a bus, it is doable. I had at least one
crew that spent the night before arrival at Philmont at the Springer
Armory (National Guard, I think). Springer is located about 25 miles
from Philmont (East, and just off I-25), and isn't much bigger than
Cimarron. I don't know anything more than that, but I'm sure others on
the list (Mike Walton) would have info on securing a place to stay
I WANT TO GO BACK TO PHILMONT
where the old Rayado flows...
Wait a minute...I am going back to Philmont (Arrivin August 13 for the
Staff Association Trek).
