What do you love most about guiding/working in adventure travel?
The moment when you see people get inspired by, and completely fall in love with, nature.
A memorable moment from your job:
Leading a group of wounded veterans, many with one and even two amputations, on a five-day hike across the Grand Canyon. We summited on the 15-year anniversary of 9/11. I left this trip in complete awe of their spirit, positive attitude, and complete determination.
