The hunt in the Rockies was a five and a half hour ride up the mountains, on trails where no motorized vehicle could possibly go. So luggage, food, and other supplies were transported by mule. Mules are great for carrying heavy loads across rugged terrain, but they love to get in trouble. And they don't mind doing it while going up and down steep cliffs either. Our guides loved them, but I think I'll stick to the horses for now. .
