Backpacker Magazine Article
May 2010
Backpacker Magazine
In February of 2010 Backpacker Magazine contacted us asking for insider information on the best wildlife hikes in Yellowstone. They were interested particularly in specific wildlife - wolves, bear, moose, big horn sheep - and which hikes would provide the highest probability of seeing them. Our Rocky Mountain Field Coordinator, Steven Cundy, was featured in the article as the resident expert. They didn't create an online version, so the only way to see the article is to visit one of our offices in either Missoula or Flagstaff, where we have framed copies up for display.

Turkey Country
In May 2007 Turkey Country published an article about Nancy Stevens, a Wildland Trekking guest who joined us on a Rim to Rim hike. It doesn't seem like too big of a deal considering hundreds of guests join us for that tour every year - except for the unique fact that Nancy is blind. Click on the image to read her amazing story and her review of our company. Jill Hewins, her guide, clearly made an impact on her, and she certainly made an impact on us! We remain honored and grateful that she chose us to host her adventure in the Canyon.
