Get On Waitlist
For the past four years, Grimerica has hosted what has come to be known as Contact at the Cabin, or CaC.
It’s a meetup of guests and fans mingling ideas and strategies about controversial topics and ancient fables over the course of a long weekend. The Brothers of The Serpent have since joined a tradition that has come to be described by attendees as “life-changing”. Contact at the Canyons returns we descend on Duck Creek Village, Utah for a second time to continue exploring Bryce and Zion Canyons under the cover of dark with David W Mathisen and Brandon Powell.

What To Expect
This year at our Contact at The Cabin 2022 event we will be offering all meals and some snack to get everyone through the stay (please contact us with dietary requirements) as well as transportation from Las Vegas International Airport to the venue in Duck Creek. We will provide transportation to and from the parks for stargazing as well as back to Las Vegas International Airport. All park entrance fees included.
There will be multiple myth retellings by David as well as two nights of stargazing in the parks with optional early morning trips available by signup. By day we will also be treated to Wim Hoff training by our friend Brandon Powell which will include some cold training with ice pools as well as the breathe work.
Bryce Canyon is the ultimate place to learn about and enjoy the splendor of the night sky. Far from the light pollution of civilization, protected by a special force of park rangers and volunteer astronomers, Bryce Canyon is a sanctuary for natural darkness.
The night sky at Bryce is so dark we can see thousands of stars on a moonless night! Here the Milky Way extends from horizon to horizon like a vast silver rainbow. Planets glow brightly in the sky and starlight illuminates the night.
We are located in Duck Creek Village. Aunt Sues Chalet, our local Restaurant is next door. There is a small convenience store and gas station. Two Fabulous Gift Shops are within walking distance. From our door, you can ATV or Snowmobile. Mountain Biking is also Big. Best most Scenic Trails in all the World, in my opinion.
Walk to beautiful Aspen Mirror Lake and Duck Creek. Just 2 miles down the road is the Duck Pond. Catch trout, watch the Osprey, Hike, or just relax! Navajo Lake is just 3.5 mi from the Lodge. It offers GREAT fishing, Boating, Swimming, Hiking, etc.
Many Zion visitors like to stay for sunset, to catch some final photos of Zion’s cliffs glowing vivid neon orange in the late day sun. Then, as the last light fades from the sky, a steady stream of cars files out of the park, as visitors head home or on to their next destination. But for those few who stay later, or spend the night in one of Zion’s campgrounds, an entirely different and memorable Zion experience awaits; the dark night sky, filled with thousands of stars, above the jagged silhouette of cliffs.
Alpine Forest Lodge is nestled in the Aspens and Pines in the mountain village of Duck Creek. Within walking distance is Duck Creek Village Shopping, Duck Creek Pond, Aspen Mirror Lake, wondrous nature hiking trails, & local restaurants. The clean mountain air is an extra benefit of your vacation retreat at The Alpine Forest Lodge. Come to Hike, Bike, Ski, ATV, Snowmobile, Hunt, Horseback Ride, etc.
