“A wilderness explorer is a friend to all, be a plant or fish or tiny mole!” – Russell, UP

  • Proposals

Tours are not available at any time.

UPdate Concerning COVID-19 🦠

We have been keeping an eye on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and listening to health officials such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and government officials, like Dr. Fauci, for proper guidance on COVID-19 and how to slow (and hopefully stop) the spread of this virus. We have stopped all indoor options during this Pandemic. Keeping our family (and home) safe & germ-free is important to us. We have also decreased the amount of outdoor photo shoot reservations.  COVID-19 is a highly contagious disease, please use caution and refrain from touching property objects here (fence, gate, gate-posts, trashcans, etc). Follow instagram (@uphouse) for the quickest update when we make indoor options available again in the future.

We appreciate your understanding and care during this time. We can get through this safely.

If you’re interested in scheduling a reservation, please email me the following information below. If a reservation is not needed, we ask that you please respect us (and our neighbors), and only spend less than 5 minutes taking a few quick pictures, practice a contactless visit, and wear a mask.  Thank you.
