"Mark was great company and had an amazingly fresh and delicious lunch for us while sitting in the most beautiful place ever. I would highly recommend having him as you guide - he is AWESOME.
I wouldn't have been able to do what we did today on my own, especially where we needed to drive. I thank you with all of my heart. This trip with you exceeded all of my expectations."

- Heather Russell, Rob Roy Glacier Hike, Nov 2016
