At least one of the jobs these llamas have is to pack out waste from solar toilets in the backcountry, according to the National Parks Service. Bummer.
Other llamas in the park have the likely less smelly task of taking people on pack trips. The llamas at Kirk’s Mountain Adventures will take you out for six hours, eight hours or an overnight trip.
