There are some who can live without wild things, and some who cannot.

You can see what man made from the seat of an automobile.

But the best way to see what God made is from the back of a horse.

Basecamp Pack Trips | Packing Service | Horseback Rides

This is the horseback adventure of a lifetime! We spend eight days following the spine of the Continental Divide through the Weminuche Wilderness of the San Juan Mountains which have the highest average elevation in the United States. The Continental Divide Trail is the newest trans-continental trail from Canada to Mexico. We travel from Silverton to Wolf Creek Pass, arguably the most beautiful section of the entire trail. The terrain ranges from volcanic domes to jagged granitic peaks with alpine lakes lurking between. This is a true adventure where the weather and the terrain interplay, only letting us pass when the conditions are just right. Our horses are the best mountain horses anywhere and will transport you safely on this 85 mile traveling camp expedition. This is a trip for experienced hikers horseback riders looking for the ultimate in scenery and adventure.
