Mountain Peaks and Rojo helped my little girl feel fierce and strong and powerful on her second birthday.
Visiting their farm, we got to experience inclusion at its finest, where people of all abilities were equals. The whole team embody love and kindness and seek to make others’ lives better in a way that is profoundly generous. They are changing the world, one llama kiss at a time.

I met Rojo and Napoleon at a hockey game, of all places. I fell immediately in love. After a year of begging my friends to get Rojo for my birthday, my wish came true! Needless to say, they fell in love with Rojo and his magic. There is something special about Rojo and his pack - llama love is truly the best!

Napoleon the Alpaca celebrated with my grandma on her 99th birthday! He was a wonderful surprise for Grandma and all the residents of her assisted living home. Napoleon is so sweet and such a gentle animal. He spent time meeting the residents and taking part in our family party. I have never seen my grandma smile so much! She invited Napoleon to come back for her 100th birthday!

I had the great fortune attending a therapy session with MTN Peaks and Rojo. The smiles and visible change in demeanor that they brought to the nursing home patients was incredible to see. They really set the standard in llama facilitated Therapy, and set it high.

My family has met Rojo and Smokey twice now at the annual Pumpkin Regatta...and most recently met Napoleon at a special Paint Nite downtown. I guess you could call us llama/alpaca stalkers? We just can't help ourselves! These beautiful creatures are so gentle and kind...and give the best carrot kisses around. They're also extremely calm and patient, often around hoards of humans waiting just to be near them. Being in their presence is like magic with 100% chance of BIG SMILES. Thank you Mtn Peaks for everything that you do!
