I am just going to post several photos I took while giving two day trips to the top of the mountain. In the seven days that I spent on the mountain top, there were only 2 mountain-top horses that I did not see. London and Knight.
I am not worried about them. I am sure they are fine. It is likely that I just missed seeing them. With the horses so spread out and in the trees on different parts of the mountain, missing them would not be hard to do. I will however, be happy to see them on my next trip. I am sure I will. I will keep you posted.
I head to the mountain again the end of this week.
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.
