Fortunate enough to have worked In Yosemite National Park and Oregon I've guided groups to some of the most transcendent trees, peaks, rivers, hot springs and waterfalls. Locally I’ve hiked 150 kilometers of the Bruce Trail, part of which is part of this experience. I’m continually on the hunt for hidden rivers and homey wineries and savor deeply the respite taken from these tonics. And while the word "professional" is rarely ascribed to me the word "personable" most definitely is. One guest reviewed me to be "the friend you haven't met yet in Niagara" but remember: she'd been sipping all day.
