It's a long walk in before you can hunt. It's why I have horses. Been hunting up that canyon since the late 50's when my dad used to drag me up there. Best thing that happen to that canyon was the Forest Service closing the road and weather washing it out. Speaking of that, I hear it flash flooded up that canyon again this summer. Have you heard anything about that? I'll probably go ride up it next weekend to just see what the canyon looks like this year.

Great thread, loving the photos :) Can these saddle panniers you mention a.... go over English saddles and most importantly be sent to the UK? We don't have anything like that over here as far as I am aware.

The Saddle panniers I use are canvas and built for Western Saddles. The horn and cantle protrude thru the canvas and help to keep it centered. Also the size of the pannier would be much longer than an english saddle. Im sure you could jerry rig the set up to work, But they are basically built to fit Western saddles They are just canvas, That is sewn into two bags, one for each side of the horse. The connecting canvas in the center is designed to fit over generic western saddle to spread the weight.


Here we used the panniers and then just tied a red duffel bag across the top

I would have to see if I could get something made up over here. I basically would want my pack horse to wear his riding saddle with panniers that fit on top so I could alternate the horse I ride or pack.

The photos are helpful :)

I hunted in there early this year and it was fine. But I was told it was washed out below the houses when the heavy run off went through and last I heard it still wasn't open. But that was probably in July. I've been hunting up above Vernal for the archery hunt so I haven't had a reason to go check it out. I'm pretty sure the ashley natl. Forest duchesne ranger district could tell us right off the top of their heads. Surely with the houses being in there, it's fixed by now.........
