Power Trips to Cottonwood Lakes & Bristlecone Forest
Two exciting hikes are scheduled for August 18th and 19th. The energy at both these locations is pure and powerful. Each location will immerse you in unrivaled beauty and discovery. Each hike will last 2-3 hours and include a short meditation. Come see ancient Bristlecone trees that live 4,000 years or more. These hikes will be extremely rewarding and will be the first time I have ever taken anyone to either of these locations.
