Family Trips: The Adventures of a Lifetime
I want to do a pack trip with my own family and horses up to Earl Grey Pass. I used to guide a 3 day trip up there maybe 15 years ago. We would ride 1/2 a day out to a few small extremely rustic cabins, stay over, ride to the top of the Glacier and back to the cabin the next day and then ride out the 3rd day. I would love for my kids to see the amazing country you can see on horseback. We cross the river a few times, cross mud bogs, meadows, climb up mountains, watch for wildlife (I’ve seen many Mountain goats up there), ride below waterfalls, ride through wildflowers, you name it. We would have to pack the horses full of our food, clothing and sleeping bags as well as grain for the horses. I love the idea of making all of our meals over the campfire, hauling water up from the creek and having accomplished such a goal with young children and our trusted partners. The horse in these pictures is my old horse Bayb. I had this horse for 20 years. She took me through some pretty tough spots and never skipped a beat. I miss her dearly.
Here are some photos of when I was guiding:

Sorry for all the photos. As I got looking I found some old beauties and I got excited. It really took me back in time. 🙂
