Mark was professional and very hospitable guide for our first overnight camping experience. Provided any quality gear we needed, and took great care of us the entire time. Lead us in a challenging 13+ mile hike offering stories and sharing his knowledge along the way. Super time…. look fwd to doing it again.

We had a great time backpacking with Mark! He made the preparation so easy – all we had to do was show up with our clothes and he took care of everything else. He is a super knowledgeable guide and a great host. He also had great recommendations for how to spend the rest of our time in the area. I would highly recommend taking advantage of any of the adventures he offers!
