What an amazing experience. Scott took me on a full day's hike to Bandalier National Monument. His knowledge of the geology, fauna, flora, and history of the region was incredible. The pace was relaxed and we stopped frequently so that Scott could explain to me the significance of what I was seeing. His ability to read the landscape made the... More

Thank you so much for those thoughtful observations! It is always energizing to hike with such an engaged and interested guest - I learn many things myself, and I love to see the landscape through new and appreciative eyes. I'm happy we both had the opportunity to walk in such a special place. More

From the initial contact, Scott's desire to make our time with him a memorable experience was evident. Actually, he wanted our entire trip to be special as he offered many helpful suggestions. He listened, promptly answered emails and was even very flexible when our luggage was delayed for 24 hours and we had to change our plans with him. It... More

Thank you so much for those thoughtful observations! We had a very enjoyable day in Frijoles Canyon, one of New Mexico's treasures. (I know we were originally going to be snowshoeing, but I'm glad we made a visit to Bandelier instead) More

Right from the get-go, Scott was quick and thorough in responding to my inquiries about this trip. His suggestion to go to Bandilier National Park was a brilliant one. He made the whole experience easy, fun, interesting and I learned a lot. From smelling the delightful aroma of the Ponderosa tree, listening for and finding migrating cranes, learning about the...

Have now hiked with Scott in the summer and also snow shoed in the winter near Santa Fe. Scott is thoughtful, ensures the trip is organized and tailored to ability level. Highly recommend a hike / snow shoe with Scott for all levels -- beginners to novice.

My sister and I had a great day hiking with Scott. He was so knowledgeable about the area we hiked and showed us so many things. He slowed the pace when we needed it and made the day so fun and interesting. He was so organized and made the day so easy. Would recommend Scott and Outspire to anyone.

Scott was very knowledgeable (former geologist/geophysicist) and made our hike very enjoyable. We hiked at a very comfortable pace and he patiently answered all of our numerous questions. I would highly recommend you use his company. We will be back for sure!!
