20% Late Season in the Hickory Ridge

It's almost time to close up shop for the season, help us make it a special outing by exploring the Hickory Ridge with us. Maybe we'll build a smoker from oak and hickory to prepare the best camp meal you've ever had. Maybe take a night hike up a remote ridge. Enjoy the calm nights as the forest prepares for winter; howl with the coyotes and hoot with the owls.

Timing is everything, as told by anyone you've ever met.
