Great stay with a sweet couple that raises alpacas. Carolyn showed us our spot and we got settled in super easily. John came by to check on us and for a little chat before we got to some work we both had due. We hiked up to the top of the hill in the morning, which was some nice exercise. Damien did some drone footage before we hiked back down. Before leaving, we visited the alpacas a bit and shopped at the store on site. Carolyn even gave us some fresh eggs to take with us. Such a fun stay! Thank you both for your hospitality.
