The Imogene Pass Road that leads to Richmond Basin Retreat is one of the finer filters most of us will travel, and the payback is even finer. You stay in a roomy platform tent on the edge of a stunning alpine meadow. Eric, the personable host and a professionally trained chef, delivers hot breakfasts and wonderful dinners at your convenience twice daily. He also provides good advice about right-out-the-tent-door hikes and insights on local natural history. Stars at night are awesome and the 360 degree mountain views from the front deck leave you lost in contemplation every time you step out. We stayed five days and wish we had more time. This is a very special destination with a host to match. We wish Eric well as he expands his footprint here with a full-fledged mountain lodge down the creek.
