WINTHROP — Guides who use horses, mules and llamas to take people into wilderness areas provide a valuable service to people who don’t have the knowledge or physical ability to go on their own, the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest says. The agency this week recommended issuing 10-year permits to seven commercial wilderness guides who use stock, but to limit their commercial operations based on past use. The permits would be issued to seven outfitters who currently have guide services that operate on the Methow Valley, Tonasket and Chelan ranger districts, including the Pasayten and Lake Chelan-Sawtooth wilderness areas, and other nearby national forest lands.
