Women, Wild(er)ness, & Wildlife - A Fall Retreat to the Rockies October 5th - 7th, 2018

About This Event

This fall create space to hike, explore, practice yoga, meditate, enjoy the fall leaves and elk bugling, and unplug for a nourishing weekend in the Rocky Mountains.
We will slow down to hike in Rocky Mountain National Park, paddleboard if it's warm enough, practice yoga and enjoy guided meditations, relax by the fire, talk walks, poke around town, have drinks at The Stanley Hotel, and connect with other wonderful women!
We'll arrive in Estes Park Friday afternoon at 1-2pm and soak up 3 long days at a private cabin that sits at the edge of RMNP.
The cabin sleeps 10 indoors, 4-6 outdoors for those who would like to tent camp on site, and then we will find close, off-site lodging for us to 4 women.
If you have any questions, please contact Mary Susan at (contact info blocked) and we'll see you this fall in the rockies!

Getting Here
Accessing Estes Park proves easy, no matter the season. Estes Park is close to neighboring Front Range communities and Denver. From cities east of the Rockies-Loveland, Fort Collins, Greeley, Longmont, Boulder and Denver, there are no mountain passes to cross, and the state and U.S. highways serving the area are well-maintained. Boasting long views of 8,500- to 14,000-foot-high snowcapped peaks, canyon rivers, foraging wildlife and rolling meadows, the drives also are as beautiful as they are convenient.

Equally picturesque, Trail Ridge Road (U.S. Highway 34) provides entry to Estes Park (elevation 7,522) from the west, notably from Granby and Grand Lake. The road usually opens Memorial Day weekend; snow forces its closure by early to mid-October. For mileages and approximate travel times from Colorado cities and other U.S locations, see the chart below.
