Our gusts will arrive at 7:30 AM and will be treated to snacks and a professionally prepared coffee or espresso beverage of their choice. We will take the next half hour to get to know each other, the desired goal for the day, hiking options and assess the fitness level of every one going on the hike. We will also assess the gear that the guests have and make a determination if the gear is appropriate for the hike that is selected. Since most hikes will take place at higher elevations, John will fill his pack with all necessary water and snacks that guests will need so they are not over burdened on the trail and can enjoy the beautiful scenery. Once every one is comfortable with the planned hike, guests will follow us to the trail head where the fun begins. During the hike, John will make sure to stop for water breaks, snack breaks, give fun facts about Grand County and also take a lot of pictures of our guests so that they can look back on their amazing Colorado experience. Once we reach the highest elevation of the hike, we will stop and take a break to enjoy the amazing vistas. When the hike is done, we will head back to our house for snacks, more coffee, and an optional sauna.
Mimi and I are both retired athletes. We have made our home in Grand County Colorado and spend the majority of our free time in nature and on the trails weather on foot or mountain bike. It is not uncommon for us to log over 1,000 miles on the trails every year with our adorable Blue Heeler Bitsy and we are both very passionate about teaching people to enjoy nature responsibly. We are very aware of the importance of being comfortable in nature and will never push our guests beyond their comfort zone or fitness ability. We have the added bonus of owning a beautiful home that features a professional grade espresso machine where we host Airbnb guests. John used to own a coffee shop and is a profession barista that can make you a perfect latte or cappuccino to start your day off right before the hiking begins.
