I had been pining for a tipi for years. I found a company that I am pleased to give a free promotion here because I personally feel they are fabulous. The Colorado Yurt Company provided all the tipis for both the movie, “Dances with Wolves” and “Last of the Mohicans”. If you have seen either of these movies, the tipis are a thing of beauty! The tipis are 100% as authentic as can be in this day and age. Even the ‘pitching’ instructions are as Native Americans would have done back in the day. Well my husband finally caved and we presented the kids (and selfishly, me) with a tipi for Christmas. They come in a variety of sizes from small to very large. Ours is around 24′ tall. We had a floor built out of pressure treated lumber and have furnished it with log furniture, indoor/outdoor rugs and blankets. It is truly magical to sleep in, especially with the flaps open looking up to the stars. The summer evenings and nights are here and the kids enjoy having campfires around the tipi, then retire into it for the night. Did I say, Magical…….
