We had a fantastic time with Stuart, and of course the llamas. I got to admit that I was apprehensive about hiking with the llamas, figured that I would be the recipient of many a llama-loogies, but in the end, it was Stuart that took one for the team when he was loading up the llama clan! Great time, very educational, and couldn't think of a better guide to do it with!

We had such a lovely day enjoying a late fall stroll through the mountains of Northern New Mexico with Stuart and his rescue llamas. Stuart has an appreciation of what generous bounty nature provides and shares his enthusiasm through education, laughter and breaking bread together. I was such a treat to get away from the demands of working to go out in the wilderness with Wild Earth Llama Adventures. I highly recommend the experience.

A wonderful, healthy walk up the mountains with the llamas carrying all your gear. Delicious lunch in a high meadow. Just a bunch of fun. Our group had ages from 69 down to 12. Everyone had positive comments about the trek. If you are going to Taos and enjoy the outdoors..this is a bucket list adventure.

My wife and I are in our mid 60's and were concerned about the hike. Not to worry Stuart,our guide, goes at a leisurely pace and stops for rests if your in need. The experience should not be missed if you have the chance. Our personel llama, Willow, followed right along for the entire hike. Lunch in the Rocky mountains was wonderful as Stuart puts out quite a spread. We slept like babies that night with wonderful dreams and now that we are back in Florida we have memories and pictures of the most rewarding experience of our trip.

Take a Llama to Lunch was the highlight of our recent trip to northern New Mexico. What a fun day outing and those llamas are sweeties! Our llama was "Zeus" and he was great. Stuart is a wonderful and very professional guide, who took the 12 of us (plus llamas) on a gorgeous hike into the Carson National Forest wilderness. He had all ages (and some of us from sea level) trekking through the forest at a reasonable pace and then fixed us a delicious lunch of sandwiches and salads in a shady meadow. It was particularly beautiful as the aspens were turning golden. Stuart shared lots of interesting information about the llamas, wild herbs of the forest, was always careful of the environment, and concerned for the well-being of his hikers, (a few of us in our upper 60's). After our llama trek ended (about 3 pm) we drove back to Taos via the Enchanted Circle Route and this was also lovely with the turning trees and lovely landscapes.
