Our hike with Karen was great. After speaking with us by phone she planned exactly what we were looking for in a hike. We saw a lot and learned a ton of stuff while were out on the hike ( even driving to the hike we learned a lot!). She immediately made us feel at ease. We have hiked the... More

We had a great day hiking around with Karen. She planned the perfect hike around what I had requested for my husband and I. I asked for a 4 to 6 hour hike anywere to learn more about the flora and fauna of Santa Fe area, someplace that was off the beaten path. She delivered exactly that! She was very... More

Karen was a very informative guide, and my friend and I really enjoyed our hike with her on a section of the old Route 66 between Santa Fe and Albuquerque. I highly recommend Outspire!

My husband and I had a great hike on Feb. 16 to La Bajada with Larry. Because there was not enough snow for snow shoeing, Larry researched thoroughly alternative hikes and gave us several choices based on our particular needs, wants and limitations. We especially loved the views. Karen and Larry were very thoughtful and organized and seem very committed... More

Our family of 4 had a great time on our snowshoe outing organized by Karen and guided by Larry. Karen had contacted us the week before we came that snow conditions weren't too good and we might want to hike instead, or cancel with no obligation if it didn't snow. However, the day before our outing we skied in 17"... More

Our group of 5 just went on a beautifully planned & executed snowshoe expedition! Karen is extremely organized & prompt in emails and information. She asked for all the information to be able to have the snow shoes, snacks, etc. that were needed for our group. None of us had every snowshoed before & we all very much enjoyed this... More

This was a surprising morning ! We thought we were just going for a morning hike . It was a wonderful combination of exercise, local history , biology and personal soul searching ! The guides were brilliant, warm and entertaining. I would highly recommend this method over just hiking on your own. You will miss the overall picture of the... More

We've gone snowshoeing twice with Karen from Outspire and have loved it both times. She provides all the equipment we need, and is great at helping us chose a hike that's appropriate for our level of ability. Because she's a biologist, Karen can really help explain the ecosystems we see on our snowshoe trips, which adds so much to our... More

Karen and Scott led our very inquisitive group of "older Americans" on a thoroughly enjoyable day at the Bajada Escarpment. It is a place of great beauty, a short distance from Santa Fe yet off the guidebook circuit. Our guides obviously possess a deep knowledge of the area's flora, fauna and geology, and they cheerfully shared it at every turn.... More
