A Fall Retreat at Mo-Ranch Soothes Your Spirit with the Season’s Beauty

By  | 

 

Autumn is a season of change in Texas. In the Hill Country, it means more moderate temperatures and a chance to get out to places and do things you’ve put on hold as a result of our extremely hot summer. Mo-Ranch is just the place for families and friends looking to experience 500 acres of pure fall fun. This Hunt, Texas, getaway from the ordinary helps you turn a fall-time retreat into something unexpected – a relaxing, refreshing, and rejuvenating experience for everyone.

Many people from Texas as well as out-of-state have yet to experience Mo-Ranch for the type of hospitality it truly has to offer. It allows guests to enjoy everything in a type of luxury generally reserved for high-end destinations. This Presbyterian Church-owned and -operated property is open to the public, inviting visitors from all creeds and walks of life to stay and play at their Hill Country haven.

To capture the essence of fall-time in the Hill Country, the ranch has prepared a photography weekend which can provide even the most seasoned of shutterbugs with fresh inspiration and new knowledge with which to capture timeless moments of beauty. Workshops in this retreat focus on highlighting the beauty of the natural surroundings. This includes capturing the exact moment you find yourself looking up at the stars only to realize you have the technology and capability to seize an image so life-like you could almost reach out and touch them through your camera’s lens. Working on topics such as exceptional light and making use of dusk’s vivid yet calming colors, this fall retreat incorporates technique with passion. You’ll create imagery that you would’ve thought could only have been captured by a professional, like that elusive silky effect from the motion of water that, up until this event, you’ve tried a million times to recreate on your own. This workshop is designed for DSLR aficionados of varying skill levels. Your landscapes will look luscious and your daytime, dusk, and night photography will once again remind you exactly why you chose this as your passion… or rather, it chose you.

Is that a tough act to follow? Not hardly. Picture a refreshing retreat from which you return with a renewed mindset. Now picture that happening in a Texas setting, where everything you’re looking for is ultimately found in your own backyard. Mo-Ranch has incorporated what we traditionally refer to as our favorite fall pastimes into some amazing getaways, complete with beautiful surroundings. If you can see yourself sipping Chardonnay as you sit down to write your day’s journal entry, your novella, or even your latest travel blog, you’re halfway there! You can almost hear the perennial clicks coming frantically from your laptop keyboard as you fire through your creativity, spurred on by the heady aroma and flavor of one of the favorite drinks of your writing heroes. That’s exactly the type of sensations and feelings guests can experience with the Hemingway & Chardonnay: A Travel Writing Workshop package. Just imagine this luxurious weekend retreat—feel the soft wool of your fall sweater, taste each sip of wine, and chat with your fellow guests about leisure and travel after soaking up the encouragement and guidance of your mentors. Scheduled for October 25-27, 2019, you can sign up now to do just that. Get out of your writing rut and learn to experience, commit, and transfer your passion to paper (or electronically, if you will). For more information or to register, visit the link provided here.

Last but most certainly not least, one can’t imagine fall-time without the inevitable transition into the Christmas season. With that in mind, a hot cocoa in hand (and most likely melted marshmallows galore,) happening November 1-3, 2019, Mo-Ranch is hosting a Holiday Craft Weekend fall retreat. It combines “fellowship, worship, and Christmas spirit” into an event that eschews anything and anyone Grinch-like. This gathering has been made for those with creative minds. Those of you with crafty friends may want to hook a girl up with the chance to work in a mistletoe and mulled wine-infused atmosphere (if only in aroma) for the purpose of creating Christmas craft masterpieces. These are beyond your wildest Pinterest dreams! From gifts to decorations, regardless of your skill level or ability, this fall retreat package is worthy of loading your social media with the images of everything you and your fellow craft cohorts create!
