Yellowstone National Park's Pebble Creek area is another amazing location in America's foremost national playground. Set just below Yellowstone's northern boundary our cozy camp will be surrounded by mountains. This three day, two night trip will give us a taste of fishing for 10-14 inch Cutthroat and Rainbows, a chance for riding, and a couple of evenings beside the campfire for stories. This is a great ride for beginners.
July 16 - 20 (5 Days) - Northwest Corner Photography Trip - $2190/person
Join us for your vacation on a five day photography oriented trip by horseback to Sportsman’s Lake in Yellowstone National Park. Resting below the majestic Electric Peak, the beauty of this high mountain lake is astounding. We will ride six miles into our first camp on Fan Creek where we will stay for two nights. Here the moose, elk and wolves have been know to frequent the area as well as the occasional grizzly. The wild flowers, the sparkling creek and majestic forest all present the perfect subject matter for capturing that perfect backcountry photograph. The night can be spent telling stories around the fire or breaking out the cameras for some amazing shots of the stars and night sky in this place where there is no diffused light pollution. The third day we'll ride seven miles to Sportsman's Lake where we will stay the remainder of the time. Guests have an opportunity to photograph the mountain lake, choose to focus on the mighty Electric Peak, watch for wildlife, macro photograph the flowers, or do a black and white study of the ranger cabin and outbuildings. (There is a great old outhouse dying to be immortalized on film or digital.)
Wildlife is always plentiful in this area. Sportsman’s Lake is often home to moose which come out in the early morning or late evening to feed around the lake. Wolves, bears, mule deer and elk are seen in this area as well.
To help us on this trip is photographer Kevin Pack. Well known for his years photographing in Yellowstone National Park as well as his watercolor art, Kevin has multiple endorsements in the photography field. He will give instruction on equipment and technique for the novice and help the advanced photographer learn the specifics of how to shoot in the Park. Kevin is also a horseman as well as a photographer so if you need help with your horse or your camera, he will be on hand to assist you.
August 6 - 10 (5 Days) - Mirror Plateau - $2125/person
On this adventuresome trip we will follow the old buffalo trails up onto the Mirror Plateau. We are currently working on scheduling a retired ranger as an expert guide for part of the time, and he will enlighten us with some of the unique history of this secluded area of Yellowstone National Park. Our explorations will take us to the old buffalo salt licks leftover from the time when the Park Service used to ranch buffalo. We will also visit the thermal areas, which are so remote, few have ever seen them. This area has very limited access and it is a real privilege to be one of the few to explore this remote part of Yellowstone National Park.
September 8 - 15 (7 Days) - The Thorofare River - $2975/person
Come to Yellowstone National Park’s most secluded and beautiful area. Thirty-three miles from any road, in any direction, this place is one of the most remote locations in the lower 48 states. Come travel with us. Learn about the mountain men who passed through this area, hear the stories of rangers capturing poachers who tried to take advantage of the remote places for their own benefit. This trip is a progressive travel trip where we will move every day and see new scenery and new places. Our gentle horses will cover some miles as we follow the Yellowstone River near its source flow down to Yellowstone Lake. And though this isn’t a designated fishing trip bring your fly rod along, there will be places every evening to fish, and the resident fish down here though small in numbers are not small in size. (PROGRESSIVE TRAVEL)
September 17 - 21 (5 Days) - Fan Creek and Gallatin River – Photography - $2190/person
This trip will feature the less traveled season of late summer / early fall in Yellowstone National Park. The wildlife will be very active and the scenery breathtaking. Bring your camera! Up here we have seen moose grazing with our horses, elk crossing the creek below camp and wolves trotting down the trail. Take time to catch the perfect shot of the aspens in their full golden glory on a day ride to the high mountain Sportsman’s Lake.
September 23 - 27 (5 Days) - Bechler River Photography - $2190/person
The Bechler region is called the Cascade Corner. Waterfalls drop from the plateaus into the meadows. The canyon is spectacular, one water fall after another broken in between by cascades and cataracts. When we ride up the canyon we will stop and feel the mist from some of the falls and you will have the opportunity to take some very exciting photos. After this we will ford the river at a number of places, leading the pack string up to their bellies through the clear cold waters. The fish here are generally good sized rainbow trout that can be elusive but once you have one of these rascals hooked, hold on, you’re in for a fight! We also fish at Mountain Ash Creek, below Union Falls for brook trout.
Bechler is a photographer’s paradise. There is nowhere one can look without finding something worth capturing on film. Wild flowers, wild life, waterfalls, horse and people, hot springs or the Grand Tetons, all are right here.
The Bechler region is filled with swimming holes for the family or just friends. There are hot springs, warm water falls, and comfortable pools to swim in. Whether cooling off on a hot summer day or taking a warming dip on a cool fall day, the water is always inviting.
Come to Yellowstone National Park’s Cascade Corner and photograph the magnificent waterfalls. This time of year is spectacular in Yellowstone National Park. The brilliant colors of autumn, the bright blue skies and crisp white clouds create the perfect back drop for photography here in America’s wonderland. Take time to capture the people, horses, wildlife and scenery. In the off time, relax in the warm waters of this area to rest your bones and rejuvenate your soul.
