A gridless life. Most of us have a hard time disconnecting from our cell phones and computers on a day to day basis. This retreat is designed for you to break away from the ordinary and connect with nature and your truest self. Set in the heart of the San Juan Mountains, we'll take three nights and four days away from the stresses of daily life to allow ourselves time to reset.
The lodge features a spacious deck/patio for mat placement or I will be offering yoga in the adjacent meadows. There's also opportunity for walking meditations and star gazing.
This year's Backcountry yoga adventure retreat will take place at the Red Mountain Alpine Lodge
which is a beautiful, brand new custom timber frame lodge located at 11,000feet on Red Mountain Pass. The cute little small town of Ouray is 20 minutes to the North and Silverton is 15 minutes to the south making the positioning of our retreat both convenient and remote. Located conveniently only 300 yards from Highway 550 just at the base of Red Mountain #3, we will have access to some of the best hiking Colorado has to offer.
Hiking options include:
Hiking to the top of Red Mountain #3
Hike the Powerline, Putney, MacMillan Loop
Run to Telluride on the Black Bear Pass Road
Hike to Richmond Basin via Commodore and Spirit Gulches
The 3,2,1, Traverse to Ironton
Hike to the Opus Hut on Ophir Pass via Mineral and Porphyry Gulches
I'll also be offering a day trip hike to Columbine Lake and/or Island Lake in the Ice Lake Basin area.
Leave your worries and bring your hiking boots, there will be no shortage of adventure at this retreat!

Can we bring our own alcohol? --Because the lodge is a licensed tavern, Colorado Law prohibits its patrons from bringing their own alcoholic beverages to the hut. However, when hiking, trail ales will be provided courtesy of my sponsor Denver Beer Co.
Where can I park? -- In the summer you can drive right to and park at the lodge.
Is there cellular signal, WiFi, and internet access? -- I hope you enjoy your stay more than your smart phone! There is no cellular service at the hut but WiFi is available should you need it.

What if I have dietary restrictions? -- The kitchen is please to accommodate dietary needs and requests. If you have nutritional requirements or allergies please specify upon booking.
You'll either be placed in the loft which sleeps 9 or in one of the three semi-private rooms that sleep 4. I will try my best to accommodate all roommate requests which will determine where people are placed. Please specify roommate request upon booking.
