Hiking…Callie Feakin of Billings will lead three day-hikes in the Boulder Valley, and yoga some evenings. The hikes will be for varying skill levels, with options. Bring your hiking boots, daypack, bear spray, etc. Anyone under 18 needs to come with a parent or guardian.
A lifelong lover of adventure and the outdoors, it is no wonder that Callie dropped her roots in Montana many years ago. With the Beartooth Mountains in her backyard Callie heads to the trails any chance she can get. It is in nature that she feels truly alive and connected to the universe. When Callie is not in the backcountry of the Beartooth Mountains or Yellowstone National Park she spends her time teaching yoga. Drawing inspiration from the world around her, themes of nature and the natural elements can often be found throughout Callie’s teaching.
Fishing…The Boulder River is well-known for excellent fishing, and Mark MacLeod will be on hand to help. You can head out on your own or hone your fly-fishing skills with one of the best. Beginners are welcome! He’ll coach fly-tying in between excursions. Bring all your equipment, and don’t forget waders – a must in the icy-cold Boulder! Anyone under 18 needs to come with a parent or guardian.
Mark MacLeod retired from guiding, but he still loves to show people the joy of fishing, and his love of Mimanagish is deep. Doug Pressman, experienced fly fisherman, wrote this last summer: “The stretch of the Boulder River alongside Mimanagish always has plenty of trout – rainbows, brookies and native cuts – and August is a fine month to be stalking them. In two exquisite afternoons I caught nine trout and released seven, all no more than 150 yards of the Full Moon Dining Hall. On the third day I followed along the riverbank as Mark MacLeod expertly waded the same water and perfectly cast his self-tied dry flies into pockets and pools I had never reached, snagging one trout after another that he’d release in seconds. It was the most fun I have ever had fly fishing. It was a rare chance to see the art perfected, firsthand, on an aptly named classic trout stream. I learned a lot from Mark, fast.”
