This year we are offering a tracking pack trip with Dr. Jim Halfpenny. Scientist, educator, author, photographer, and world renowned tracker, Jim has been teaching tracking since 1969 and tracking since 1957—50 years!.

Jim's writings, photographs and classes have been featured in many publications, including Backpacker magazine and the New York Times. He has written numerous books and articles on tracking, ecology and Yellowstone wolves. Enumerating Jim's credentials here would be impossible, but suffice it to say that he has conducted research and led expeditions to the four corners of the world, including both polar regions, the deserts and mountains of China and Africa, and the forests of the tropics.

On this three day pack trip into the Pebble Creek area, Jim will lead field trips each day, teaching the basics of tracking and interpreting Yellowstone wildlife. On the second day, we will take a horseback ride to Bliss Pass, where we will be able to track both bighorn sheep and mountain goats.

Pebble Creek is a beautiful region of the park, walled with canyons throughout much of the drainage, and it should provide ample evidence for tracking grizzly bears and moose, as well as many other small mammals.

This is an exciting opportunity to interact with one of the world's great wildlife biologists and, arguably, the world's greatest living tracker.

The map to the right shows the route that our trail follows. The scenery is absolutely stunning.

This trip has a stationary Base Camp. The cost is $1,400 per person, and the trip lasts three days. Check our Calendar for availability and have a look at our menus and packing list.
