Maybe you haven’t heard this kind of term before – and that’s okay, that’s not unusual.
Casual campers really often don’t think too much about the environment that they’re in. They may read some things on visitor center boards, or remark about some cool-looking stone structure, but some won’t have access to in-depth information about the natural world that they’re walking through.
That’s part of the reason why we put together these geological immersion tours, where we actually bring people into a greater knowledge of what they’re seeing and experiencing as they hike. It’s done in a context that offers “luxury in the outdoors” and many of our guests find this thrilling!
Journey Through Time
Geology buffs know that the study of rock and natural processes is the study of pressure over time. In a sense, rocks tell the story of the land and civilizations that have used it in their own ways.
The stories that rocks tell, though, are only accessible when you have the right kinds of knowledge about how to interpret this aspect of the natural world. You’ll hear how we’ve put together our resources and grown the ability to interpret the surrounding landscapes to be able to guide our visitors through in a more intelligent way. Our tours are chock full of real info about the history of rock structures and the lay of the land, so that when you’re done, you come away with more than just pictures (yes, we know the pictures are important, too!)
Then you also have the other part of this experience – culinary camping, where you enjoy high-quality cuisine out in the outdoors.
Whether it’s an elevated breakfast or a magnificent supper under the stars, Canyons and Chefs has put together some amazing culinary adventures that combine hiking and camping with delicious meals!
For instance, take a look at our pop-up restaurant experience and all that we offer, from specialized lighting and screened in tables to the sunset stroll and backcountry camping option. You can also peruse some sample menus. What about a fire-grilled ribeye with herb butter and fingerling potatoes? Or scallops cooked in a cast iron pan, or trout ceviche? What about high desert tamales with braised local pork, red chili and sharp cheddar?
These are the types of sensations that await your taste buds at Canyons and Chefs. Come and see why we are the best around!
