Hike Backcountry in a Remote Montana Canyon
A hike for nature-lovers, the adventurous at heart wanting complete privacy and going off the beaten path. Spend the day, evening, or night** exploring a canyon within the Mission Mountains closed-off to motorised vehicles for over 40-years. Accessible only via our private road and game trails this remote hike is a taste of rugged adventure surrounded by unique magical views. Truly remote and located in an area of Twin Lakes, you’ll peacefully enjoy sounds of nature while learning about wildlife safety, native plants, scat identification, territorial markings, and area history. Bear sightings are a strong possibility due to the hike being in a protected ancient grizzly corridor. You’ll start in our old-growth forested private property with a pond fed by year-round snowmelt attracting deer, elk, bears, bobcats, mountain lions, turtles, etc. Hikes go deep in the Canyon, following a creek then, coming out on top to spectacular views of the Mission Mountain Range taking between 2-4hours and generally 3-5miles. Expect bushwhacking, climbing over downed trees, steep grades on the inclines and declines. Elevation minimum is 3,800 feet while the max is 4,400 feet. This hike is considered light to moderate, experience dependent. Want different hike? Just contact us. **Night hike: for people wanting sureshot wildlife, stars, Milkyway &headlamps (i.e., á la Indiana Jones).
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.

Pottery lessons and studio time
* Guarantee Learning to throw pottery on the wheel is a huge first experience for most people who have a desire to see if they have the ‘ceramic gene.’ It’s something in your blood. You see someone throw a bowl on the wheel or have a friend who hand-builds funny birds for a living and you just can’t shake the desire to see what YOU can create with your own hands with clay. Then you’ll get started on your ‘pottery experience’ by learning the proper steps required to throw any type of pot on a pottery wheel. You'll learn the following: • Exploring clay: what makes it do the things that it does. • Wedging: what it is, why it’s necessary and when it’s not. • How the pottery wheel works. • How to prepare your clay for the wheel. • How to prepare your body for working on the wheel, including proper posture. • How to center clay on the wheel. • Compression: what happens if you don’t. • Opening the center of the piece. • Raising the sides while creating the walls of your piece. • Shaping your piece. • Maintaining and restoring integrity to your thrown piece. Note: Come for the experience, not to walk away with pottery. * 100%, Unconditional 5 star experience. If you're not satisfied, you may contact us with feedback and we will refund up to 100% of your payment. We'll ask you what you think is fair and that will be your refund.

Our hike passes through a mature ponderosa pine/Douglas fir forest and a 19-year old burn that has lush regrowth and lots of wildlflowers. From the highest point of the hike you will see the entire Missoula valley as well as the spectacular Mission Mountain Range 20 miles north of Missoula. I am a Master Naturalist and Certified Interpretive Guide and if you are interested I can share my knowledge about the flora and fauna as well as the fascinating geology of Glacial Lake Missoula while we hike.

It ascends a total of around 500 feet in elevation then drops 500 feet in elevation and the terrain has rocks and tree roots in places.
