Looking for a one-of-a-kind Valentine's Day date? This is it!
Show your Valentine they are super special this year and extend the celebration with a Scenic Sunday in the Roan Highlands. Come with us on a beautiful hike to explore the wilderness and then descend Roan Mountain to discover and taste the cuisine prepared by the most dedicated and talented farm to table chef in the high country Amos Nidiffer. A one of a kind experience crafted by Yan Luss and HikeMore Adventures. The day will start early, with an intro to safety, backpacking gear review and "leave no trace" ethics. Then from Carvers Gap we will ascend a trail to Roan Mountain, known to the locals as The Roan - composed of peaks of Roan High Knob and Roan High Bluffs. The massive ridge that extends to the northeast of these peaks comprises a massif known as the Roan highlands - an area synonymous with the grassy, alpine-appearing summits called the Southern Balds which shelter the largest of its kind Rhodendron Gardens and the greatest concentration of rare plants in the southern Appalachians. At 6,286 ft Roan Mountain is the high point of the Roan-Unaka range of the southern Appalachian Mountains, and although the 1.5 mile hike is easy to moderate on the difficulty scale, it offers incredible views and vistas! Once on top we will take our time to just enjoy the stoke! We will cook lunch on the fire by a traditional Russian method. Preparing Shashlik - sizzling marinated lamb cooked on 4ft long thick metal skewers in the wild - is a long lasting tradition of the mountainous regions of not just Russia but also of Armenia, Republic of Georgia, Turkey, Eastern and Central Europe. Then you will have the opportunity to explore the area on your own, have your scenic view photo taken by our photographer Justin Costner (@justincostner) and 5 beautiful edited photos of you and your loved one will be included! As we chat by the fire we will demonstrate starting fire by friction and several other practical wilderness living skills including water purification and navigation methods not involving modern technology. At 3pm we will start to backtrack to the trailhead and then take a short drive to our courteous patrons - the 100 year old Trosly Farm run by a young vibrant husband and wife team ( http://www.troslyfarm.com ) who are opening the doors to their home and farm exclusively for us during the winter season! At Trosly Farm you will have the opportunity to see a traditional farm up close and enjoy a fresh seasonal five-course meal cooked of ingredients grown, harvested and prepared right on the property. This is an invitation to go a hundred years back in time with us! Experience both the above peaks and the below valleys, the rugged mountains and the warm wood burning stove while seated at a thick wooden candlelit farm table, all of you brought together over an organic meal by our journey and love of wilderness living and homesteading. Trosly Farm Menu: -Our farm made breads, cheeses, cured meats, local honey and spreads -Mushroom cream sauce on handmade tagliatelle pasta -Ginger Carrot Bisque Soup -Grilled Pork Chop, Polenta Cakes, salad of warm mixed greens with molasses vinagrette -Chocolate Mousse and shortbread cookie $135/person and reservations must be confirmed by Feb. 12th.
