18 days and counting till our family goes to Bear Trap Ranch for a marriage counseling retreat! They have free childcare so the girls will be there while DH and I attend a seminar and then we get to spend the day with each other. There is lots of stuff to do there too. Here are a few of the things we found on their website to do together:
We carry a selection of premium single-origin and blended coffees, locally roasted to highlight their unique characteristics. We would love the opportunity to do a coffee tasting for your group. Experience the “wow” of coffee when paired with pastries, chocolate, cheeses, mushrooms, nuts, and more. This educational time is enjoyable and tasty. Plan 1-2 hours... some groups have lots of questions and love to interact with our in-house barista.
Orienteering is the sport of navigation with map and compass. It's easy to learn, but always challenging. The object is to run, walk, ski, or mountain bike to a series of points shown on the map, choosing routes—both on and off trail—that will help you find all the points and get back to the finish in the shortest amount of time. The points on the course are marked with orange and white flags and punches, so you can prove you've been there. Each “control” marker is located on a distinct feature, such as a stream junction or the top of a knoll.
Load up 30 people on a trailer with a pile of hay and take an old-fashioned hay ride to Duffields. Overlook the city of Colorado Springs... great memory–making moments and pictures.
Quick! Grab a snow tube and come join a friend on the tubing run for hours of enjoyment.
Get a pair of snow shoes and head out for a quiet walk though the mountains enjoying the beautiful mountain views.
Ice skating is a great activity for people of all ages, Bear Trap has skates to borrow if you need them.
