Our family of 12 stayed at Talus Lodge in early September. The weather was cool and the ground was lightly snow covered but we were still comfortable hiking the area. The lodge is simple and basic but pleasant and comfortable. The meals made by Leah were abundant and truly delicious. The guided hikes provided by Chris were always wonderful and we were educated and amused by his knowledge and stories of each amazing vista, plant, fossil, rock formation and animal that we came upon. Chris made every effort to make all of us feel comfortable and safe both inside and outside the lodge and is a friendly, warm and engaging man. Talus Lodge provides a wonderful high mountain hiking and natural experience and the helicopter ride there and back is breath taking!
