Anahim Lake, Guest Ranches & Horseback Riding

A three day cattle drive near Anahim Lake in the Chilcotin - what a great experience! From the ranch we pushed cows and calfs onto their summer range in the mountains. The trail varies, from alkali meadows to winding creeks, to muddy swamps and jackpine ridges. If there even is a trail! This country is still considered "the last frontier" and there really is no other way to find your cows than on horseback. Camping in the mountains and sleeping under the stars really ads on to the great memories, not to mention the fantastic scenery of the Itcha Mountains.
