2014 Spatsizi Wrangling
I spent almost 3 months wrangling for Collingwood Bros - the sole outfitter for Spatsizi Wilderness Provincial Park in northern BC.
I helped trail about 20 horses 120 km into Hyland Post flew to Laslui Lake for the rest of the season. Having survived being stalked by a trophy size black bear, I helped trail the horses out.
We went over the plateau between Laslui Lake and Hyland Post in a blizzard the first day, rested one day, then trailed 29 horses out the next two days. A 160 km trip in 4 days. It was a challenging season, but I sure love that country.
