This was our second tour with Jared of Yellow Wood Guiding. We loved the first one so much, we knew we had to come back to RMNP and do it again! Our first trip was in the Spring, and this one was in the Fall. Jared personalized each trip to our own wishes, and I was amazed that each was... More

As we didn’t have a car whilst staying in Estes Park with a family of 4, I decided the best way to experience the RMNP was to take a trip like this. Having now experience the tour, I would still do it even I did have a car available to us. Jared’s knowledge of the area is commendable and he... More

Jared asked what our preferences were and tailored the trip to us. Although the weather had been bad the day before, he was able to find some wildlife for us to see and... More

Jared made our park visit amazing, pointing out all sorts of wildlife and fulfilling my dreams of seeing a moose out in the wild! We saw 5 moose, including a baby. Letting us use his long range scope and binoculars was great, as I don't have that sort of equipment myself. Next time I come back to the park I'll... More

We took the 4 hour wildlife tour (445pm) and it was just amazing. Jared was hands down the best guide ever. His level of knowledge of the parks, history, landscape, wildlife and climate was absolutely impeccable. He is able to explain the behavioural patterns of the wildlife in great detail. You are encouraged to ask Jared questions, and he is... More

My husband, 20 year old daughter and I spent 8 hours with Jared in mid August. We were interested in wildlife and landscape photography. We were fortunate to be able to photograph some large elk that were losing their velvet. Got some amazing pictures of elk with the fog, pikas in the superman position, beautiful landscape with water and a... More

We spent an incredible evening with Jared in mid August. Jared was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and made our time in Rocky Mountain NP ten times better than going on our own. He started the tour by asking what was important for us to achieve in the time together - photography, wildlife, scenery, etc. We were most excited to search for... More
