The time is taking reservations for CROPPIN' IN THE MOUNTAINS Retreat

Hello everyone!

Scrafters With An Altitude is excited to share with you the plans we have for an AMAZING mountain retreat at Bison Peak Lodge in scenic Colorado! Remember how fun pajama parties were? You were away from home, you got to stay up late, hang out with your friends and have a great time. We are inviting you to take a break from adulthood and join us for some good old-fashioned fun!

Key information:
  • Date: September 26, 27 & 28, 2008
  • Where: Bison Peak Lodge in the Tarryall Mountains, CO

The Bison Peak Lodge is located in Colorado's Tarryall River Valley about 2 hours southwest of Denver-- at the geographic center of the state. The lodge looks right out at Bison Peak, the highest peak in the Tarryall Mountains (12.486 ft) and is nestled along Second Creek at the base of Farnum Peak , one of the higher points in the Puma Hills. You can see pictures and get more information about Bison Peak at their website at The Owner’s of the Lodge are Chelsea and James Faerber. Chelsea will be our hostess for the event. I will post her bio in a few days so you can "get to know" her.
