About the experience

We can host up to 8 travelers*

Experience the many unique versions of the Colorado Rockies adventures:
Eco tourism guided tours of Mountain Hiking, Forest immersion/ deep meditation experience aka "forest immersion breathing", Native American sacred sites and Culturally Modified Trees. Other Colorado experiences also available. Have your own art Classes in plein air outdoors or studio art, Nature photography, high altitude organic gardening farm to table; gourmet outdoor cooking and more!

To plan your trip, remember to fly into the convenient airports and rent a car ahead of time. The most efficient way to get here is to fly into Denver DIA airport and drive a rental car to us, about 30 to 45 minutes from Denver. We can give you directions -it's easy. Or you can fly into Colorado Springs Airport COS and rent a car. Almost everything you would like to do near here is in walking distance or within 10-20 minute car ride to some of the most spectacular scenery, geology, and Native American historical sites on Earth.

( By the way we have dogs, and cat on premises, but not in living area.) Wildlife throughout the area- daily you may see deer, elk, bears, raccoons, more; hummingbirds, bluebirds, songbirds, eagles, hawks, falcons. So much wildlife here!

*

We have a no smoking policy home, just fyi. Bedrooms (2) sleep 2 per; up to 6 for sleeping - using the large great room we can add cots as well . Shared bathroom and shared great room with walkout to 11 forested acres with meadow, stream and pond. (Local Marriott hotel will accommodate larger groups for sleeping), and we meet at our local adventure spots at appointed times for the guided walk experience. Gentle hikes in the forest and mountains and local scenic areas such as Garden of the Gods are easy for everyone and every age. Intermediate hikes include hikes with flat Trails and steep incline areas, but relatively strenuous due to the high altitude. (There are also very strenuous hikes for advanced hikers including hiking areas of the Front Range). There are also opportunities to take the Pikes Peak Highway up to the top of Pikes Peak, and areas with lakes, Forest, and more. Hikes and picnics outdoors are great favorites with everybody.W

Colorado Rocky Mountain Experience: casual, low key, fun

March 18, 2018

Today started out sunny and bright, warm, and we had breakfast outdoors on the deck overlooking the meadows and forests. Clouds are rolling in now, promising much-needed rain for the Rocky Mountain wildflowers. March is a fun month, plenty of sunshine as always, with some rain and even snow - we can nordic ski in the morning and by afternoon, the snow is melted and we take a forest hike!
