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

We spent the first day of our RMNP vacation with Jared on a morning Photo Safari and could not have been happier. Jared gave us the perfect start to our week, we learned about the geology, plant and animal life as well as the history of RMNP. This knowledge made our remaining time much richer and added to our respect... More

Even if you have only one day in rocky Mountain National uPar could do no better than spend it with Jared and the Yellow Wood Guiding -Private tour. His knowledge of the area, animals and history is better than anyone could expect. To be able to go out into the park, and know where, and when the animals are supposed... More

My Husband and I did the Photo Safari in early June and had an amazing time! Jared was wonderful, an excellent guide, and awesome naturalist. Every question we had, he answered with ease and was quick to add tidbits of information we never thought to ask about. His instruction on our camera was great and he was prepared for everything...
