|Jan's happy and looking good on Bo.|
|Single track. Our guides were dealing with|
trail clearing quite adaptly. Pays to have retired
Park Wardens as guides.
We got to be tourists and wait from them on our horses. The horses, of course, took any opportunity to eat grass and some leaves during these frequent breaks. We reached the Pass after about 3.5 hours; after some steep climbing our horses had to do. We supported them as best we could, making our riding lessons count.
While there was plenty of grazing for the horses, there was no water for them. So we had a well earned rest, some lunch and got on our way back down.
Upon our return we got to a river we had crossed in the morning. Now, Al said, let your horses drink! And they did. We got back to camp after an awesome and exhausting riding day with about 6 hours logged!

While it's definitely easier to ride a horse up here than hike
with backcountry gear, it's still a great workout!
|Our horses get a break and graze to their heart's content.|
|Awesome views over the glaciated Goodsirs. They are |
impressive at up to 3,500 m high.
