The adventure begins the morning of your departure for our main wilderness camp. The ABO staff will transport you through some of the most magnificent country in North America. (If some of this country looks familiar, perhaps it is that you have seen it on the big screen in A River Runs Through It, and The Horse Whisperer.)
Upon arrival at Independence Camp, you will meet your guides and wranglers who will pack your gear and introduce you to your horse. During the next four hours, the caravan will climb a 10,000 ft. pass and descend 2,800 ft. into a picturesque valley, the home of our base camp, Hellroaring (7,200 ft.).
At camp you may relax and refresh yourself in your wall tent whose comfort and coziness belies the fact that you are many miles from any permanent human habitation. That evening you will enjoy a wonderfully prepared meal with beverages of your choice, a roaring campfire to gather ’round and time to socialize and share the anticipation of the adventures to come.
A good night’s sleep followed by an early rising and a big breakfast prepared by our great cook will set you on the path for your true mission: hunting, fishing, or just enjoying what is justifiably called, “God’s Country”.
Regardless of your chosen activity, our guides will escort you every step of the way. We are confident that you will find the guides knowledgeable, skilled, and accommodating. Whether you seek the majestic elk or the wily cutthroat trout, the end of the day will afford you the satisfaction of time well spent in pursuit of your sporting dreams.
