Last week my wife and I took an overnight snowshoe trip with Stuart to the "Long John" yurt, which sits in the Carson National Forest at 10,000 feet with spectacular views in all directions. The weather was perfect, the snow was fresh, and Stuart helped make this a memorable 49th anniversary adventure. The yurt is owned by Enchanted Forest Nordic... More

We spent great time snowshoeing with Stuart. Even that the the rest groups cancelled the last moment, he made tour for two of us. He really loves what he is doing and happy to share it. It's possible to do for all levels. He gave lots of interesting details about nature, trees, animals. Even that we thought we were good... More

We spent a lovely 4 hours with Stuart in La Jara Canyon. His enthusiasm is contagious! And his knowledge of the outdoors and plant and animal life is excellent. We hiked up for about 1 1/2 hours (stopping for a hot chooolate break) and then lunch through forest with spruce, firs and aspens. Stuart makes it fun for all ages... More

I came with my family and we all had a great time! Many layers and good boots with wool socks and heated insoles ensured no one got too cold. It was moderately strenuous but, if anything, that helped us stay warmer in between stops for hot cider and a chili lunch!
