Imagine flowing down the Yellowstone river, eyes filled with wonder as your guide gently rows you through a flat water section of the river, the fresh river scent filling your lungs as you view awe-inspiring scenery.

Now imagine you're gently swaying in the saddle far above the river. Watching rafts pass far below you, the scent of wildflowers puts a tang in the fresh air of the Absaroka Mountains. The clip-clop of hooves and burbling streams provides a soundtrack for the stunning panoramas around you.

Now imagine both of these amazing experiences happening in one day!

Answer the call of serenity — all day long!
