Our wildlife safari was the highlight of our time spent in Estes Park and the beautiful Rocky Mountain National Park. Jared is so knowledgeable about all the animals, the entire ecosystem of the area, and the history of Estes Park. Plus he supplied great equipment for viewing. If I only had to choose one activity to do in this beautiful... More

Jared is a great professional. His extensive knowledge about ecology, animal behavior, geology, etc. makes this tour extremely enjoyable. We took the wildlife safari on Aug 24th, and without Jared's knowledge of the spots where the animals are we would not have been able to see that many on our own. The tour was even better than I expected, the... More

Jared was an excellent guide, taking us to amazing spots for both landscapes and wildlife. His knowledge of not only the park, but also of the flora and fauna seems encyclopedic. He gave us tips on both photography and local animal behavior which we were able to use after the tour ended. We also greatly appreciated the use of his... More

Jared supplied very helpful information beforehand (bring a coat - it will be cold) that allowed us to visit parts of Rocky Mountain Park that we would have been unable to go to in tee shirts and shorts. We had no specific requests so we given a tour that allowed us to see animals, plants and spectacular scenery. Jared is... More

This marks the second time in as many years that we have booked a tour with Jared. He never disappoints. The best guide we have ever had. Jared knows the park and the living things in it. Informative, interesting, and engaged. He works hard at locating the wildlife you would like to see and the geography that you want to... More

The early morning spent with Jared of Yellow Wood Guiding was one I will always remember.....even if it did start with a 5:15 am pickup at our cabin. We picked a Photography/Wildlife option, and were not disappointed in the tour. Jared is a wealth of knowledge about the area and wildlife....he told us some very interesting facts regarding the wildlife... More

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our photo tour! It was more than a photo tour, Jared's knowledge of RMNP history, ecosystem and animal behavior was very impressive, we learned so much and would definitely purchase another tour on our next visit. As for the photography potion of the tour, I have gained several new skills and a lot more... More

Ours was an evening wild animal tour of RMNP. Began at 4:45 and returned after 9. Jared is passionate about his craft and extremely knowledgeable. He provided great information about the history, geology, ecosystem, biology of the park. His understanding of the animals and their behavior is formidable. We were fortunate to experience the beginning of the Elk rut high... More

We spent fours hours touring the Moraine Park area with Jared giving us expert advice on photography. He is exceedingly patient with instruction on photography, and a real expert on the wildlife, flowers, geology and history of the area. We got rave reviews on the photos we sent to friends.

Our tour of Rocky Mountain National Park with Jared Gricoskie of Yellow Wood Guiding was the pinnacle (no pun intended) of our visit to Estes Park. Jared took us out early to catch a sunrise and then proceeded to show us all the wildlife we could have wished for, including a mama bear and cub (a happening even for him)... More
