Parties, posadas and gift exchanges are part of the holiday season, and but for this year’s gathering reunion the Terra Peninsular team wanted to do something different, so we wrapped ourselves up with in warm clothes, we packed sleeping bags, blankets, outwear, outdoor gear, food and a couple of bottles of wine (Mexican wine, of course) and we began our adventure towards the Rancho La Conception Nature Reserve (also known as Dark Skies Ranch) located near Sierra San Pedro Martir.

After several back and forths on many road curvey roads, a bumpy not-so-nice road and even passengers who felt dizzy (obviously, those of us who spend more time at the office), we finally arrived at Dark Skies Ranch in the afternoon. Thanks to Mike and Pam, our friends and owners of the ranch, we had the opportunity to enjoy our end-of-the-year celebration in this beautiful place.

Once we were settled into our room at the house, we decided to take a walk through the forest, and found the perfect spot to watch the sunset. We were awed by the amazing scenery in front of us; it’s incredible how the horizon lines dissolve among the beautiful colors of the sunset.

Back at the ranch we had dinner (what a feast!), then a gift exchange, and ended with a toast around the bonfire.

Our trip wouldn’t be complete without visiting the Sierra San Pedro Martir National Park, so the next day we decided to visit (after waking up with the right amount of coffee). The park is not far away from Dark Skies Ranch, and as we drove up the road, we saw how the landscape changes, turning into a snowy scene, just like a Christmas card. We didn’t stay too long at the park, but it was long enough to enjoy a snow fight against the boss!

Terra Peninsular works well partly because our team is unified; we feel very lucky to be part of this family and to work together.
