Lodging
Lodging during the Covid:
Each person chooses the type of lodging that suits the individual.
Choices include primitive or formal camping, hotel, Air B&B, or staying with friends.
Contact me for more details on the best location for lodging.

Level of Physical Challenge
This is not a *strenuous* hiking program with long miles traveled each day.
The emphasis is on connecting to specific growing environments and the healing flora found within them.
However, some people find these days physically challenging due to the higher elevations (9,000′ – 12,000′).
The hiking distances are 1, 3 and 5 miles respectively.
Feel free to contact me for more details.
