We have hiked pretty much every other way, why not give this one a shot?

Llama Llama ding dong has farms throughout the state to allow you the opportunity to hike with a llama.

First of all, unlike hiking on horseback, you don't ride these guys. No, they are along to pack out your stuff and be there as a hiking buddy.

You can get guided hikes, with guides and llamas and have fun all day in the high country with your new pal.

How many times have you gone on a hike with someone and all they want to do is talk? You're out there trying to enjoy the scenery, maybe spot a few birds and your companion is talking about office politics or his last failed relationship. Annoying, isn't it?

Well, on a hike with a llama, you won't have to worry about that. They are quiet, unassuming animals who don't mind the silence, and who love to go on hikes, packing all of the things you might normally carry.

Some folks will tell you hiking with cats is the best way to go, because they notice everything, while some will tell you hiking with a dog, for protection and company, is the way to go, and that's ok too.

But hiking with a llama just sounds cool. It's a great way to enjoy hiking without straining yourself carrying a backpack full of all the things you need for an all-day hike.

You should check it out.
