Check-in and welcome dinner.
Breakfast and first encounter with the horses. Today we will take a walk around Whiskey Ridge.
Today we plan to ride around 4 hours west of the village of Braag Creek, where we will then stop for a short tour and some shopping before returning to the ranch.
We will ride to North Fork which is approximately 23 miles southwest of the ranch. There will be incredible scenery on the rocky mountains and especially in September you will cross the forest in its most incredible magnificence.
We will go further into the unspoiled nature of the mountains, and we will reach up to 3000 meters, where the vegetation, now sparse, will give way to rocks.
As the last day and culmination of this adventure we will have an incredible panorama from a point of view at 2100 meters, from which we will observe the hundreds of kilometers of peaks that extend to the east.
