USFS Mules return to the Bowerman Pasture

The USFS mules and horses have been wintering at the pasture of the Bowerman ranch. The hardworking mules and horses are used to pack supplies such as food, mail and tools to back country crews. They also supply firefighters when conditions such as weather and smoke prevent the use of the helicopters.
