Enjoy the spectacular sunsets of the Sierra and White Mountains while a cook prepares dinner over an open fire.

This program is a special opportunity that combines a superb outdoor adventure and a unique educational experience in exploring the biology, ecology and behavior of a proud and beautiful animal — the North American wild horse.
