2014 Spatsizi Wrangling
In 2014, I spent almost 3 months in Spatsizi, wrangling for Collingwood Bros - the sole outfitter for Spatsizi Wilderness Provincial Park in northern BC. First, I helped trail about 20 horses the 120 km into Hyland Post. Then I was flown to Laslui Lake camp for the rest of the season. Having survived a few incidents, including being stalked by a trophy size black bear, I helped trail the horses out. We went over the plateau between Laslui and Hyland Post in a blizzard the first day, rested one day, then trailed out 29 horses over the next two days. A 160 km trip in all. It was a challenging season, but is still love the country.
