Cowboys the iconic figure of the Wild West and the Colorado Rockies. These seven days finds Les surviving not alone, but with two horses. This gives survival a whole new twist.

Out for a casual days ride, Les (and horses) have to survive temperatures that vary from 70°F in the day to snow flurries at night. The mosquitoes are thick and relentless and mountain lions hunt in the area.

While trying to find graze and water for the horses, Les has to collect food in the form of wild edibles shooting stars, lady supper dandelion, glacier lily and more.
