Surrounded by Ponderosa Pines, our brand new bell tent sits directly in front of one of our fire circles and not far from spectacular views overlooking the El Morro Valley. Several mesas, El Morro Monument, and Los Gigantes can be seen in the distance. Benches and a picnic table are nearby. 

Inside the tent, is a rug, solar light, and inflated queen sized bed (22" height) awaiting your bedding.

Outside, are two Cliff Rose bushes that bring heavenly scents in late Spring. Also, a mineral block that the deer like to visit.

You can walk to the tent in under 1 minute but vehicles are unable to drive directly up to it.

Flying Horse Retreat is a place for spiritual seekers to find vision and renewal through sound healing and retreat. In addition to tent camping & glamping rental, we offer private retreat, sound healing chair sessions, vision quests, but we are very excited about opening up the land to campers. It is a unique opportunity to experience normally private areas of this sacred land.

Our remote and quiet 20 acres of heavily forested mountainside includes deep gorges and rocky terrain, while Ponderosa Pine canopies offer shade from the sometimes intense NM sun. Wildlife is plentiful, though sometimes elusive. Deer, Elk, Fox, Bobcat, Lynx, Wild Turkey, Roadrunners and Coyotes are all regularly seen on the land.

See Flying Horse Retreat for more images of the land.
