We take small groups of 8-10 family, friends and co-workers who want to be challenged, empowered and bond together through the adventure of this trip.
After retiring from 31+ years as a firefighter, I moved back home to Arizona to rediscover my roots. Hiking and backpacking were a big part of my plan- however the years of service and resulting injuries prevented me from being able to carry heavy packs long distances. It was by fate that I was invited to a trip to Havasupai with a friend who said, "all you have to do is carry your water and some snacks, the horses take everything else!" Who could pass that up?! One trip was all it took for me to fall in love with this magical place. I started to assist in guided trips, learning the nuances and secrets the Havasu canyon and its people have to offer. Now my passion has become your opportunity to experience the same magical, mysterious, and wonderful adventure that is Havasupai.
