Great Horse Packing Pic

Whenever you pack into the backcountry you have to be creative in how you load your gear. I have seen some pretty cool setups over the years, but this has got to be one of the most creative ones. It would take some good pack animals as well.

Great pic and definitely some great minded pack horses. Thanks for sharing!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Tight turns was my first thought when I saw this, haha. I'd never seen anything like this before

That was a Back Country Horseman Work project up Logan Canyon if I remember correctly.

Another strange load I saw was the Forest Service packing out a small airplane that had crashed up near Four Lakes Basin. The debris had laid on the side of that mountain for years. Finally the Forest Service decided to haul it all out of the wilderness, They brought in some Mules and packed out all the wreckage.

We typically are packing in camp and packing out wild game
