Until mankind first stepped outside in 1934, nature was thought to be a fanciful myth, like yogurt or the clutch hitter. Spend a few hours frolicking through the fresh air of truth with today's Groupon to Rough Creek Lodge and Resort in Glen Rose. Choose between the following options:
- For $45, you get a 90-minute guided ATV excursion (a $90 value).
- For $50, you get a 90-minute guided horseback ride (a $100 value).
Rough Creek balances glamour and nature to create a rustic resort rife with adventurous treks through wild landscape. The hideout sits on a scenic and spacious 11,000 acres at the edge of Texas Hill Country. A 90-minute ATV excursion lets gung ho getters-away express their disdain for roads with the roaring horsepower of a four-wheeled horseless carriage. All guests will vroom under the protective expertise of a watchful guide, with terrain and routes suited for any skill level and any age older than 16. Water, goggles, and helmets are provided to ensure safe automotive trail dusting. On the steel back of a motorized steed, the wind is swifter, the noon is higher, and the range is as open as it was in the days of our robo-cowboy forefathers.
Those who opt for the guided horseback ride can commune with nature and equine life, high up on the back of a classic imported ungulate. Each rider sits atop a horse suited to their size, whether they are a gargantuan 8-year-old or a medium-size wookiee. Seasoned guides lead exploratory posses through the picturesque brush and trees into a realm of nature-infused peace. Riders must be at least 8 years old.
