No horseback. My brother's first trip was affected by an early snow. The combination of snow and elevation forced him to flater lands as opposed to humping hills.
As long as you mention Dubois, we plan on arriving early and spending a night in Dubois as well as travelling north. I have heard that Dubois is very cool place to visit. We also want to head up to Cody and the Beartooth weather permitting. Not asking for anyone to approve my agenda; just excited about the whole trip.
