Our family of 4 traveled from Texas to Santa Fe the week after Christmas. I had contacted Scott to schedule a day several weeks in advance. He responded quickly by email and suggested several hiking options. He was very knowledgeable about the rock formations and history of the area. We had initially planned a hiking adventure. However, because of the... More

My friend and I joined Scott for our second annual post-Thanksgiving hike, and were treated to the most amazing tour of the badlands north of Santa Fe, culminating in the fabulous vistas of Window Rock. As before, Scott was both trusty guide and excellent host, taking us on a fun and gorgeous exploration of some of the Santa Fe area's... More

Scott met us at our hotel and shared his wisdom on so many topics regarding local history, culture, geology, weather, and nature. His expertise is so wide ranging that he could comment with five of us on our ongoing twists and turns of our questions. The ability to remain so flexible with our topics was amazing. It was a half... More

We were visiting Santa Fe and wanted to see the landscape. Scott suggested Tsankawi, on the edge of Bandelier. It's a beautiful hike (and not difficult if you don't mind a few ladders) but what made it come alive was Scott's incredible knowledge about the ancient Pueblo culture. Showed us everything from the cave dwellings to the pottery shards to... More

My wife and I did a hike through Bandelier with Scott as our guide a couple weeks ago. He was absolutely wonderful. He has an immense knowledge of the park and the history behind it, a reverence for the Native Americans. He's a geologist by training, so also has a great understanding of the environmental changes over the years. We... More

Scott was terrific! His in depth knowledge of the native Indians made the trip an educational experience! Along with beautiful scenery, Scott turned us on to smelling and tasting the fragrant wild vegetation. He was great with our 9 year old and even read to us a little passage about the history of the land we explored. He showed us... More

Scott will wear you out with a fun hike in the Bandelier National Monument. We did the all day hike finding extremely old artifacts, seeing some mule deer very close, and catching the Falls not far from the Rio Grande. Highly recommend this activity. Scott is extremely knowledgeable of the park, the Pueblo history, and is in condition to handle... More
