Happy Holidays 2019

Happy Holidays from Maggie and Yve! We are wishing you all a jolly holiday season and a New Year full of adventure, good health and joy.

We’ve had a wonderful 2019 – this last season was on the wetter side, so we had no fires to contend with and it was the best wildflower year we’ve ever seen. From our Climate Change trip with Steven Running to our September trip in Birch Creek, we enjoyed amazing folks and stunning landscapes across the Bob.

We also had a season of wildlife sightings. We had a close up viewing of a grizzly bear cooling his belly on a patch of snow. We saw two grizzly bears literally on the face of the Chinese Wall, running on a thin green patch midway through the rock. In August, there was a wolverine swimming in a creek next to the trail that scurried away quickly upon spotting us.   We also saw an aquatic moose completely submerge itself in a small pond in order to eat the plant life on the bottom while her calf laid sun bathing on the bank.   These were just the most memorable ones, but we also saw many goats, elk, deer, black bears, birds and one wolf.

We wanted to thank all of our employees, helpers and families for this past season. We are so lucky to work with and be supported by such excellent, fun loving and competent people. These are the people that make everything work.

We’ve got an excellent line-up for 2020. Here’s the low down on the trips we still have open:
