What do you love most about guiding?

I love my job, I get to go to the Grand Canyon for work. Hiking and backpacking is always a challenge, whether it’s physical or emotional and guiding people through that is something I find meaningful and fulfilling .

A memorable moment from your job:

Anytime I’m sleeping in a tent, looking at some beautiful southwest scenery or catching a sunset.


Amanda was supportive, fun, and open. She made sure we had everything we needed…Amanda cooked dinner and we ate watching the sun set over the rim. I will never forget the colors and beauty. I’m grateful Amanda made that happen for us!Kate, Grand Canyon Backpacking Guest
