Pack It Away!

One of my favorite highlights of Bishop Mule Days is getting to see the pack teams in action.

There is nothing quite like a well-trained team of pack mules under the guidance of several experienced packers. It is just awesome to watch them all work together as a team!

Here are some pictures of several of my favorite packing events at Bishop Mule Days. The first picture is from the Pack Scramble. The team with the blue shirts is K-Bar-K from Raymond, CA. They are some really good packers, and usually place near the top every year.


This next picture is from the Sunday evening Pack Off for World Champion Pack Team. All those items you see set around the arena are things that the packers will have to load on their mules and tie down well enough that they won't come off when the mules go around the back track - quite a challenge sometimes!


And here is another photo I like. This beautiful pack team participated in the opening of the Sunday evening show last year.


We hope you can come join us in enjoying more great packing events like these at Bishop Mule Days 2005 on May 24-29!
