"Look. This is my second trip with Wildland. The reason I go is to see the mountains etc., but the reason I return to Wildland is because of the comprehensive level of planning and skillful management of the trip. From the first email I send to management, through the registration process, further with securing transportation and lodging recommendations, and finally on the days of the trip, everything is thorough, thoughtful, and professional. Thanks." - Lansing F.
"Great trip. My first backpacking adventure and I loved every minute. Chris is a great guide and an asset to your company. Hope to see you next year!" - Paige H.
"This trip was exceptional for me - a life experience. I typically organize my own trips, but am very glad I agreed to go on this one after my friend Dr. Schultz invited me to go on the trip. Chris really "took care of us, and made the excursion even more interesting because of his knowledge and varied interests." - Jim D.
