We will cross-country ski through a gorgeous and quiet forest filled with ponderosa pine trees and a creek. We can ski 2-4 miles, depending on your ability and/or desire and stop for hot cocoa along the trail. I am a Certified Master Naturalist and Certified Interpretive Guide with a degree in Wildlife Biology and I can teach you about the interesting flora and fauna of the area too.
Goat Farm Visit
We will relax and pet goats in the grass or barn This is a small herd of friendly milk goats. My son and I have raised these goats since they were babies, so they are very friendly and calm! All of the activity will be on my farm near the barn area. The amount of walking or exploring is group dependent. Goats love to eat! They will also impress us with their climbing and curiosity. Many times of year we have baby goats--"kids" that are fun to pet. My son Adam will also be hosting some of the walks.

Outdoor Scavenger Hunt with Active Stations near Missoula
The Scavenger Hunt on our 100-acre property will take you on a 2-hour-long adventure through the forests and mountains of our property -The Hohnstead. Along the way, 6 active stations await you, such as splitting wood, panning for GOLD, using a slingshot, guessing riddles, identifying trees and wildlife, using a bow and arrows and more! Covering around 3 miles of a mountainous and forested area, should give you a great workout, a memorable adventure and a chance to connect to nature. We believe that the more time you spend in the forest, the better you feel, they don't call it Forest Therapy (Shinrin Yoku) for nothing.

Discover yourself through a Horse-Assisted Healing Session
Learn about yourself through learning about horses. Work one on one or with your group with Katie Rose and her herd of horses to uncover subconscious fears and negative pathways that are holding you back from what you want in life (even if you don’t know what that is). These Discovery Sessions are a beautiful way to be directly in tune with yourself through the mirroring that horses provide. Dispose of unbeneficial old energy and build yourself up to feel strengthened, courageous, and in tune with your inner truth. Expect two to three hours of discovery, exploration, and ultimate relaxation during your session with horses. This interaction with horses is all on the ground. Most clients leave a session with a profound feeling of relaxation similar to that of just having a massage and with the added bonus of inner knowing! (Please message me if you don't see a date and time that works for you on the existing calendar and I will be happy to try and accommodate)

This is a unique opportunity to visit areas a little less well known for a stroll and gorgeous views while I create memorable images of you. Other things to note Guests must provide their own transportation. For groups of 2 or less, I may be able to provide transportation, but please message me before booking.
