Our horseback trip was made possible by Aaron and Judy who own Early Winter Outfitters. Quinn worked very hard maintaining the horses and mules and packing and unpacking our gear. Kevin prepared great meals. Both are very pleasant and were very attentive to our needs.
Our trip was five days and four nights. We highly recommend Early Winter Outfitters. They more than exceeded our expectations, and as those of you who know us know, we have high expectations for our trips. The outfitter provided all meals and tents. We brought our own sleeping bags, clothes, and other personal items. Early Winter Outfitters will also drop off equipment and supplies for hikers who do not want to backpack in their supplies or who want some form of assistance getting in their supplies.

We were glad we went in late June. Later in the summer can be warm and dusty and busy on the trail. We did not see that many people on our trip. On the rainy morning, I was on the trail lying down taking pictures when a ranger came upon us. The ranger gasped thinking she had a rescue situation and was relieved to find we were only taking pictures. On our first and second day we only saw one other person. On our fourth day, no one. The meadow was our private sanctuary never visited by any other persons.
