Jared is very knowledgeable about many aspects of Rocky Mountain National Park, and made our afternoon delightful. From showing us bear claw marks up an Aspen tree to choosing an excellent site for sunset photography, Jared did it right. He taught me several new photography techniques and is familiar with quite a bit of gear. You won't go wrong by... More

A wonderful experience. Jared was the ideal guide: showed these first-time snowshoers the techniques we needed, chose a fantastic and varied route, and shared his deep knowledge of the trees, geology, and wildlife along the way. He knows RMNP like the back of his hand, and is an engaging person to have a snowy adventure with. I recommend Yellow Wood... More

My daughters and I took the snowshoeing safari tour with Jared. What an amazing guide! We were a few minutes late due to snowy weather, and he was kind and understanding and got us started off right away. He knows so much about the wildlife and the history of the area, it was a joy just to listen to him... More

Our wife and I made our first-ever trip to Colorado in November and the excursion with Jared was by far the highlight of our adventure. His knowledge of the area and the animals made for an awesome trip. It was a great way to start out our stay there as we learned so much about where and when to go... More

I went to Estes-Park with my brother to do the snowshoeing safari in late November. Jared is an excellent guide with a good knowledge of the park's wildlife and of the site's history. The communication was very easy, and the guide really met our expectations. I highly recommend a private tour with Yellow Wood Guiding, you will have a great... More

Imagine sitting next to your favorite college professor/best park ranger ever for 4 hours, listening to his/her love of nature and wealth of knowledge - we were enthralled. Yes we saw most of the animals we were interested in (marmots are already hybernating, moose are a rare sighting in RMNP), he knew right where they would be and we covered... More

By far the best thing we did on our trip to Colorado! I can't recommend one of these photo safaris enough to anyone visiting Rocky Mountain National Park. Jared was professional and an exceptional tour guide. He picked us up promptly at our condo (bright and early at 6:15 am), and immediately proceeded to teach us about the town and... More

Jared is that rare combination of professional photographer and outstanding teacher. He is an extremely effective and patient instructor. If you want to get the most out of his tour, watch the videos on his website before you go on your trip. We were glad we did. Jared taught us how to use our cameras more effectively. He got us...

My friend and I did a Photo Safari Tour with Jared in mid-October. We were beginners with just point and shoot cameras but Jared immediately put us at ease and showed us various camera settings and other techniques to improve our photos. Jared was enthusiastic, very knowledgeable about photography and wildlife behavior, so patient answering all our questions, and had... More
