Here in the Rocky Mountains visitors have a lot of options for getting out and about. Hiking and biking are very popular, and guided tours are an excellent way to really experience the high country safely and easily. But carrying heavy backpacks can sometimes be a bit cumbersome, especially at high altitude, not to mention the little ones in the family who start out with so much energy, but peter out at mile five, needing to be carried all the way back to the camp or car.
Here’s where llamas come into the picture.
Llamas are a natural for carrying gear; they are environmentally friendly to the terrain, comfortable at high altitudes, and have an easy temperament. A llama can carry up to 80 lbs. of equipment, including tired children.
Kirk’s Mountain Adventures (KMA) has terrific back country day trips including fly fishing, horseback riding, and snowshoeing, but their overnight pack trip with the llamas is truly a unique experience.
Family owned and operated, Kirk’s can provide all the equipment you need including tents, sleeping bags, backpacks, food, and guidance. They will set up camp, prepare all the meals, and take you anywhere you would like to go- they even have exclusive access to some of the most beautiful private lands for fishing and hiking. Be sure to bring your camera!
Kirk’s llamas are also available for day trips and drop pack services. For more information call or visit and tell them the SILVER MOON INN sent you!
