Autumn Equinox Adventure

Our 2023 autumn equinox mountain adventure in the beautiful San Luis Valley of Colorado was a most memorable time spent with some amazing human beings. Autumn is one of the most enchanting times of the year here in Colorado. During this intimate retreat we offered a variety of different activities such as hiking, horseback riding, yoga, rejuvenating natural mineral hot springs, and a one of a kind dance party with music DJ'd by David Satori of Dirtwire/Beats Antique. David also performed a live ambient music set during our optional group journey, aligned with Colorado's law SB23-290. 


Our home base for the Autumn Equinox Event was the rustic and enchanting Steel Horse Retreat. The Steel Horse Retreat accommodates guests with a mix of private guest rooms, RV sites, 'glamping' domes, and tent camping sites. Not only was the Steel Horse an incredible venue, but the natural surroundings and magnificent views were the perfect backdrop for a most magical time.

Group Nature Hikes

The group hikes are a great way to exercise, de-stress, and experience the true beauty of Colorado. We tailor our hikes to meet the group's fitness level, so everyone can enjoy the experience.

Rocky Mountain Horseback Adventure!

We saddled up for a mesmerizing horseback riding adventure in the picturesque landscapes of Colorado. As we traversed through the enchanting pinion trees, crossed a serene creek, and ascended to the mesa top. Our guided trail ride was lead by expert staff through the mountains. The wonders of Colorado's wilderness helped to create a magical time spent in nature.
