Into oza kuyenza

Have you ever noticed that you feel better after being outside? Scientific studies are now showing that time in nature can lower blood pressure, reduce stress, and improve your sleep and creativity.

In this guided experience, you will unplug from the stresses of daily life and enjoy spending time in the high desert foothills of Albuquerque. This is not a hard hike and not really a nature walk either. In fact, we may barely cover a mile and it will involve plenty of sitting. This is good for people of all physical abilities, who might be a little hesitant to explore the outdoors on their own or who want to unwind and slowdown. And don’t worry….this is not religiously based, you aren’t required to share any of your thoughts if you don’t want to and there will be no awkward drumming sessions! Instead, we’ll use the sweeping views of the mountains and valley to hone your quiet observation skills, give you some time to de-stress and perhaps you’ll trip over some emotional insights along the way.

There will be several segments, each with a different focus, and we’ll end with a cup of coffee in the outdoors. The hope is that you will come away feeling a sense of well-being.

**** Since this is an outdoor experience in an area with plenty of open space and we will be arriving in separate vehicles, it is naturally 'socially distant' !! A perfect way to reboot your mind.
Other things to note
Pit toilets are at the parking lots, but not along the trails. Allow extra time to pay for parking and use the bathroom

With one foot in the natural world and one in the art world, I have found a perfect balance in NM. I pursued wildlife science and enviro communication, but also create art as a way to capture beauty. Since moving to Alb in 2001, I have found scientific and artistic inspiration outdoors, but I also find that it’s the perfect place for introspection. I now have a global ecotourism startup business and have organized group trips to Panama, Africa, Spain and California. I adore meeting new people and love sharing New Mexico with others.

I hike and mountain bike in this area of Albuquerque foothills nearly everyday, year round and have scoped out the places that are a little off the 'beaten track', where I have found the perfect blend of solitude and safety. The views towards the mountains are exceptional and the views towards the valley are grand and inspiring. For people traveling from out-of-town, or who haven't explored much in the foothills, this spot is an accessible gem.

Ifumene 4.97 kweziyi- 5 kwizimvo eziyi- 34.

This was a great experience; Has a single female traveler it was really nice to have someone to show me the area to help me know what to expect when hiking in desert wilderness areas. She put a lot of time into personalizing this experience and having me decompress in nature.

Terry was a wonderful host from beginning to end! My business partner and I came from out of town and in addition to experiencing a magical walk (with moments of still sitting) in the desert, she filled us in on lots of local things to do. She was prepared with netting for bugs (which was a thoughtful and very practical touch) and even filled my bottle with water after it had spilled all over my car. We felt both safe and well-taken care of. Oh, and her biscochito cookies and iced coffee were yummy and a great way to end the experience. Definitely recommend!

That was one of the most unique experiences I have ever had! It was so peaceful and calm. We saw deer, hummingbirds, and white-winged dove. I definitely plan to do this again several more times!

We LOVED our morning with Terry. She’s an incredibly warm person who helped us appreciate our surroundings. The spots she took us to were tranquil and gorgeous. She went above and beyond, offering us delicious cookies, coffee and tons of recommendations for the area. We loved every minute of it!

I'm so grateful to Terry for helping me get a great start for my New Mexico trip. It was special for her to share her favorite spots and her love for Albuquerque, the mountains, plants, and birds. Terry helped me experience silence in ways I hadn't before. She is personable and friendly, mellow and easy to be with. The time ended so nicely with warm coffee, real milk, and delicious New Mexican cookies. Thanks, Terry, for an amazing, memorable afternoon!
