We absolutely LOVED this tour. Jared is an amazing tour guide! Saw lots of wildlife but also received a first class education about RMNP and the wildlife found there. Very accommodating and worth every penny!

Jared was super flexible, knowledgeable, and helpful in providing us a unique experience in the Rocky Mountains. In addition to the online videos that he has produced, which are in themselves a valuable resource for learning the basics of photography, in-person Jared has so much...More
