Ansel Adams Wilderness

For those less adventurous or physically unable to haul a 50 pound pack 10 miles into the wild, there a great way to still enjoy the solitude and beauty of the mountains while having almost every comfort imaginable along for the ride.

Southern Yosemite Mountain Guides in California specializes in horse/mule supported trips where the stock carries in the sleeping bags, tents, clothes and things you don't normally see in the high country. Ice chests, fine wine, fresh produce, steaks and chicken can all come along and the top-notch guides of SYMG are trained back-country culinary wizards that do more than point out the flora and fauna!
