My wife and I took a day hike with Stuart and 3 of his lovely llamas out of the Columbine Campground. Stuart gets you involved from the very beginning learning about the llamas and helping get them packed and ready to go. The hike is a good one on its own merits - beautiful lush winding forest path with a... More

My husband, two sons (ages 9 & 12) and I had the most spectacular experience with Stuart and his llama adventure. Stuart is an extremely knowledgable and kind man. From the moment we met him he was interested in who we were and where we were from. He spoke to my sons about nature and various medicinal plants we would... More

My wife and I were interested in bringing our 15 month old daughter along on a 3 day llama trek. We have a decent level of backcountry experience but we wanted an experts opinion. Stuart assessed our abilities and made us feel comfortable bringing along our little girl by letting us know that he carried his own children on similar... More

Everything was set up perfectly. We started with a careful safety lecture so the kids would know how to handle situations in the wild. Then we got to meet the llamas with handfuls of treats so everyone would be comfortable together. We hiked up a beautiful wooded trail with a small creek, flowers and wild raspberries. A few miles in,... More

We had an absolutely amazing hiking experience with Stuart and his rescue llamas. The llamas are sweet and very well trained while still having their own unique personalities. Stuart is an amazing guide who took great pride in educating us about the environment we were hiking in, the llamas we hiked with, and getting to know each of us individually.... More

Our family "took llamas to lunch". It was a very enjoyable hike, and Stuart was a friendly, careful, and very knowledgeable guide. And, of course, the llamas -- surefooted furry cuties who not only carry all your stuff, but provide comic relief. This is a memory our teenager readily admits to enjoying (high praise! :) Thank you, Wild Earth --... More

Our family purchased an experience for us with Wild Earth. It was Lunch with Llamas. We have three kids from 9 to 14 and they had a great day. Stuart was a fantastic guide and the llamas have such a great temperament they were fun to be with. The hike was picturesque and each of our kids had a llama... More

We had a terrific day hike experience with our 3 boys (18 months-11 years) in early August. Stewart kept both kids and adults in our group engaged, shared lots of fascinating information about the terrain, plants, and of course the llamas. The llamas really captured all of our hearts, and the kids took the responsibility for caring for the llamas... More

Because I had had a marvelous 3 day trek with Stuart 5 years ago, I knew I wanted to share a llama adventure with my grandson. We joined Stuart, K2, and Zephyr for a "take a llama to lunch" trek.
