There, the booming .50 caliber black powder rifles will be a great end to your day (or start to the next)! Follow the Rayado or hike over to Wild Horse for lunch before dropping down into one of our most remote staff camps at Crooked Creek. Enjoy relaxing under several enormous Douglas firs and learning how the old homesteaders survived in the mountains. You will then head to Beaubien to brand boots, test your roping skills, eat a chuck wagon dinner, enjoy a cowboy campfire, and ride horses down beautiful Bonito Canyon. Check out the B24 bomber wreckage on top of Trail Peak as you hike to Crater Lake where the Continental Tie and Lumber Company will greet you. There you will climb spar poles, cut railroad ties, and enjoy the loggers’ “Company Meeting” at a spectacular campfire bowl overlooking the Tooth of Time. Be mesmerized as the sun fades behind Rayado Peak, Crater Peak, and Rayado Canyon on the final day of your trek. This special moment will be something your crew never forgets.'
