At the Grey Feathers Lodge, you can hear the unique voices of over 400 species of wild bird year round including thousands of hummingbirds in the spring and summer. In the morning you can wander out to either of the large porches and watch the sun come up over the mountains of the Gila National Forest. From the porches you may see elk grazing in the pasture, deer drinking from Sapillo creek, a flock of wild turkey or javelina having breakfast among the deer. At night you might hear the cry of a mountain lion calling it's mate. You'll see thousands of bright stars in the cool, clear night sky. Located in the mountains at an altitude of 6000 ft. the lodge boasts of mild summers and winters. Summer night temperatures drop into the fifties. 10 to 15 inches of snow each winter is typical and it is gone within a day or two.
