High Country Hike and Hot Spring Soak

This tour is a MUST DO! Ryan is such an accommodating and salt of the earth kind of human. He did not disappoint! We hiked out to an amazing vista with breathtaking views all around for a wonderful picnic, stopping to appreciate the abundance of wildlife the Rocky Mountains has to offer along the way.

This is hands down the best guided tour our family

has ever been on. Ryan’s personality, charisma and abundant kindness made it feel as though we were all family.
