Hello

Welcome

There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. This is Catharine Kimberly's favorite session with hikes up to 9,700 feet for a dip in 33 degree glacier fed lakes. They usually thaw the week before we get there. We hope you enjoy our site and call with any questions.

                        if it does not stretch your mind,
                       if it does not force you to think about things in new ways,
                       if it does not challenge you to examine some of your assumptions."

Expand your mind, outlook and have an incredible amount of FUN on an American Wanderer Adventure.
