Riding Into the Wilderness: Horseback Journey in the Rocky Mountains

Saddle up with your grandchild to experience the cowboy life in the remote wilderness of the West Elk Mountains in the Gunnison National Forest. Take a field trip to a working ranch, then journey to one of the most spectacular areas of the Rockies to camp with seasoned outfitters and learn about nature, wildlife and orienteering. Go on nature explorations via horseback, and learn how to care for the animals. Enjoy cowboy games, Western-style meals and star gaze next to the campfire on clear nights.
