Gathering Places

Due to the current restrictions, our gathering places are not available to guests at this time.


A huge sculpturing of stacked rocks in the desert wildness creates a blank canvass for seating, exhibiting, cavorting and gatherings. Known as the “Forum,” this dramatic 120’ bowl of inspiration and privacy is enhanced by:

  • · The sun drops behind the mountains to the west earlier in the evening then most of the desert, which creates a softening of the sun and long peaceful evenings of soft light.
  • · The seating faces east so the afternoon sun is on people’s backs and not in their eyes.
  • · The desert floor slopes upward from the path of the audio, creating optimal conditions for sound quality.

The Forum is literally detached from civilization, an island of sanctity. What kind of a gathering would you create in this sculptured bowl for the giants?


Apollo is the Hidden Passage central gathering spot to hang out, relax with a cup of tea or coffee and a good book, or use the WiFi to catch up on work or with friends back home. Cozy and warm in the winter, open and airy in the summer, Hidden Passage serves occasional meals and hosts other small activities for its guests. Drop in for a drink, pick up a DVD, or stop by to visit us in the office,
