The heart of the Absaroka Beartooth wilderness is my home away from home and Yellowstone is my backyard.
Growing up here, I was fortunate to come from a long line of ranchers and farmers. My grandparents, who are outfitters, spent every summer teaching me how to ride horses, lead the trail rides, saddle, lead a string of mules, entertain guests, and work as a team to get the job done right.
It was all fun for my cousins and I, who loved being apart of the adventures we gave people from around the world. However, as we grew older we found out how valuable the work ethic and people skills we learned first hand in this business were!
My grandparents started a guide and packer school for those who would like to become a part of this incredible way of life. For those who completed the school it was a life-changing experience whether they went on to get a career in the field or not; because they learned the same things we did as kids: work ethic and people skills, but most importantly, that its family work.
Through this blog, I am going to give you a snapshot view of my adventures and lifestyle in the modern “Wild West” and beyond!
