NEW!  Snake River and  Basin Creek, September 16-21
An excellent fall adventure into the beautiful Snake River and Basin Creek areas of Yellowstone.  Cooler temps, few people and the elk rut bring on fall in the backcountry.    We begin our adventure at the South Entrance to Yellowstone, riding through the beautiful Snake River Canyon and onto Basin Creek.  Staying two nights next to the Snake River, a soak at the Snake River Hot Springs and time for some fly fishing at the beautiful campsite.  Then onto another beautiful campsite along Basin Creek with forest, surrounding big, open meadows and a small thermal area which has provided us with very good wolf sightings, elk and bear over the past years.  I am really excited about this new fall trip;  excellent riding, wildlife viewing and fall colors await our adventure!

Silence and Solitude,  September 27-30

Our final pack trip of the season, a time to enjoy the silence and solitude of Yellowstone's backcountry.  Oh, it won't be completely silent; hearing an elk bugle or a wolf howl to awaken your senses.  After a summer of crowds, the backcountry is a place of solitude and we experience the changing season, fall colors, wildlife and warm campfires. 

Our adventure will take place in the beautiful Lamar Valley and Cache Creek, always a great place late September!
