Twin Creeks Llamas, Take a Hike        

Children can lead llamas

Notice: Twin Creeks Llamas will be closing as of December 31, 2019. We are completely booked for the remainder of 2019 and are taking no further reservations.

To all the wonderful people that we have hiked with over the last 18 years, we want to thank you for making this adventure one of the most rewarding endeavors of our lives. We have made many friendships over the years through our llamas that we will cherish for the rest of our lives.  

Back in the early days of our business, around 2004, I believe, the Washington DC, PBS station did a little segment on “quirky getaways” in the metro area, and Twin Creeks Llamas were featured. I just dug up that old audio file and listened to it again after so many years, and it brought a tear to my eye.  Who knew, way back then, that llamas would become the most adorable and loved animals that they are today.

It seems counter intuitive, that after doing llama hikes for so many years, and to have just completed the most amazing, busiest, and most profitable year that we have ever had, that we should decide to close the business. Truth be told, we have been planning toward this day for a few years now. We still have some of the original llamas that we started with in 2001. Our 5 remaining stalwarts are Santiago, Coffee Bean, Prince, Pete, and Jesse. They are still in good health, despite their advanced ages, and I’m sure that the exercise that they get with the hikes, has kept them in good shape, but they are starting to show some signs of slowing down, and we think it’s time to let them retire and enjoy their remaining years relaxing on the pasture. We would also like to mention our other llovely llamas that we remember fondly; Napoleon, Domino, and Silver.

Tim and I, too, are ready to retire. Tim has already retired from two careers, the first retirement from the Air Force, and the second from the State Department. And now we are ready to retire from Llama Trekking and have the freedom to finally do some traveling.

Though the thought of ending the treks is very emotional and poignant, it also brings joy in the prospect of starting a new life full of new adventures.

Though the llamas have been the foundation of our business, it is you, the people, that have been the heart of our business. You have made this ‘quirky’ adventure the most extraordinary, remarkable, and unforgettable undertaking of our lives.  Thank you all and ‘Take a Hike’.  

{ I will be dismantling the web site in the near future as time permits, but I needed to get this notice posted as I have been promising everyone that we would make a decision on our schedule by November, 2019. The website has all the information about our hikes, and some of our favorite photos, but we are no longer accepting reservations.}

We and our llamas will still be here on the farm and I will be posting photos and ‘the haps’ on our Facebook page. So we would be happy if you would check in to www.facebook.com/twincreeksllamas and follow us. 

I will still be making llama crafts, and gifts from our llamas’ fiber on my Etsy shop. www.etsy.com/shop/tcllamas. I’m always adding new things that we make here in our shop, so please check with us when you are looking for llama related gifts.
