This is the second time I have taken a llama trek with Stuart. The first time was 12 years ago. Both adventures were out of this world amazing. Beautiful scenery, wonderful llamas, a very knowledgeable guide and fresh, great tasting food. You can't beat that. This is an adventure I would definitely rec.

Today my family went on our third trek with Stuart into the Rio Grande Gorge in the brand new national monument. We saw, petroglyphs, geologic wonders, a wild river, and our intrepid llamas, K2, Rio and Diego. Llama trekking offers the opportunity to be free of a daypack and just breathe in the wonders of nature. Stuart knows his landscapes,... More

Stuart did a great job of interacting with all of the hikers, and showed a great deal of love for his animals.

Llama treking in the Carson National Forest proved to be the highlight of our seven day trip to New Mexico. Stuart's hospitality, and obvious dedication to this wilderness area, to the wonderful "rescued" llamas, and to educating participants, made our day really memorable. There were no packs to carry--the llamas did it all--and the food was delicious.
