Heading to the Pryors

Niobrara, June 2013
Niobrara, June 2013

I am busy getting ready for my next Pryor Trip.  Amber and I leave on Sunday for 10 days.  Within those 10 days, we will be doing 2 camping trips and 2 day trips on the mountain.

I have tailored my camping trips after a person that gives guided tours into the Bob Marshall Wilderness.  The Outfitter is still in business (WTR Outfitters), but the company founder has retired and is no longer the owner.  Jack gave guided tours for over 50 years.  Bill and I very fortunate to be able to go on one of his trips, about 4 years ago.  Those memories will be with me for a life time.

Of course, I won’t be giving these tours on horse back, but what I did learn was how to provide an experience that will be remembered, along with respecting the land and animals within it.   I also learned, that just because you are camping, doesn’t mean that you can not have good food as well.  If Jack and his crew can pack up good food and take it into the wilderness on a mule, there should be no reason why I can’t pack up good food and get it there in my truck!   There will be no freeze-dried or packaged camp food on these tours.  The mountain air mixed in with the good food, only adds to the experience.

I recently got a cancellation for 2 days of day tours in late August.  If anyone is interested in a day trip, please contact me.  (406-244-0015).  My camping trips are full for this year, but  I am taking reservations for the summer of 2014.

I am really looking forward to showing several people the top of the mountain for the first time.  I am also looking forward to seeing what changes have occurred since I was there almost 3 weeks ago.  I will be sure to update you as much as I can while there.
