    Blue Mountain Peak Ranch offers a rare opportunity to see what Texas looked like before settlement. Camp host Richard has restored a piece of land that was little more than cedars and deer to a diverse ecosystem that runs wild with rare frogs and lizards and a healthy mix of grasses, cactus and conifers. Most importantly the process of returning to a balanced habitat has rejuvenated springs that had long run dry. It really is quite amazing to see fish and tadpoles swimming in a once-dry spring-fed creek.

    Richard took us on an hour long tour to see just what he has done to restore this mountainous Texas landscape. This opportunity gives you a chance to be educated about land restoration and controlled burns, but you'll also get to choose the perfect place set up camp. We had countless options, but in the end picked a site above the main spring. It was a great place to peer up at the stars. When we got up in the morning we hiked the spring valley. Make sure you bring some waterproof shoes or wadding boots to experience this trek.
