Hiking with a llama: Is this the next big thing...

Instead of carrying a heavy backpack into the backcountry, some people are bringing along a llama for their adventures. 

"I’ve seen a growing trend in the past year: Hikers and backcountry campers using llamas to help carry supplies and to add some four-legged company to a trip through the southwestern Colorado wilderness or the high elevations of Rocky Mountain National Park.

I always turned into a conversation starter. People would tell me how they’ve done difficult hikes in the past, and the llamas made it much easier. Others talked about the enjoyment of having the animals with them on their adventure."  by Will Swope, 9News.com, Denver, CO.
