Overview

You'll be riding in tall lodge pole conifers, the historic Yellowstone fire burns and along the Henry's Fork of the Snake River. The Fat Pursuit provides a fantastic excuse to not only achieve an outstanding accomplishment but venture into Yellowstone National Park during the quietest time of the year, and make some turns in the Tetons.
