I had the opportunity to do a day hike with Karen and Outspire. Not only was the scenery gorgeous and awe inspiring, Karen was a wealth of knowledge and history. A trained Biologist, Karen had answers for all my questions and I felt like I was in a science classroom getting an immersive experience. I can't say enough about the... More

My family and I have now hired Outspire twice, first for a trip to Bandelier National Monument (with Dene) and second for a hike along Buckman Mesa (with Scott). The main reason I wanted to use guides is that we are from out of state, and I was worried about getting lost. However, Dene and Scott brought so much more... More

My two friends and I have been meeting in Santa Fe once a year for the past 7 years and always look for something new to do when we are in town. Karen did a great job of finding the perfect hike to fit our interest and skill. She showed us some wonderful petroglyphs and was very knowledsgeable about the... More

Our group of four had a private tour with Karen on a Sunday morning. She was very communicative during the booking, called to confirm once we were in town, and met us at our hotel on Sunday morning. We followed her out to the national forest and took of on an out of the world snowshoe trip. In total, we... More

We were scheduled to do an all day hike in Bandalier on the 30th. Thankfully, Karen was watching the weather carefully and called us on the 29th to alert us to a bitter cold weather storm that was forecasted for that day. Karen jumped into action and suggested an alternative hike for the afternoon of the 29th which turned out... More

My wife and I both had a great time. We had good weather (in early December), and the guide was extra knowledgable. We are both retired geologists, so we had hoped for more than just a hike, and our guide was very knowledgable (even by our standards, particularly as this area was one neither of us had worked on or...

My sister and I had an incredible time snow shoeing with Karen in the forest above Santa Fe. We lucked out when a snow storm provided a beautiful 6-8" base of snow during our recent visit to Santa Fe. Karen was able to accommodate us last minute and she made the whole trip a breeze - picked us up at... More

We had a great day hiking with Karen, our Outspire guide. Karen took us to a Mesa southwest of Santa Fe. Karen knew the history of the area, the plantsthe geology, and the wildlife we saw. She was able to take us directly to petroglyphs found on the rocks. She was a veritable cornucopia of information. Karen kept a pace... More

We had a wonderful day hike with Scott, our Outspire guide. The hike was tailored just for us, Scott was gracious, so full of information and insight, and completely fun. Karen was delightful to work with in making all the arrangements, as well. I'd highly recommend a hiking adventure with Outspire to anyone interested in getting an up-close view of... More

My husband and I had a wonderful day of hiking with our 2 friends and Karen, our Outspire guide. Karen took wonderful care of us and opened our eyes to the beauty of Santa Fe. She pointed out things we would never have seen on our own. Her knowledge of most everything is amazing! She's well versed in science, history,... More
