The trip to the Absaroka-Bear's Tooth Mountains was a wonderful experience for us. We felt very comfortable exploring a remote area that the two of us would have felt reluctant to explore by ourselves, and our group leader had a tremendous and intimate knowledge of these mountains that can only be acquired by years of exploring. We enjoyed both hot sunny days and snowy days. The Hunter's Peak Range is just plain fun to stay at, comfortable lodging, great food, and an owner with a marvelous sense of humor. We both want to do the whole thing over again with the same people in a new but nearby location!


Excellent hiking program. Leaders were the best of the best. Drop dead beautiful country. RJC


The trip to the Beartooth Mountains was a perfect: outstanding leadership, gorgeous hikes, excellent accommodations and meals, lots of learning while having a terrific and fun time.


Wonderful hiking over varied terrain with knowledgeable leader. Come prepared to exercise and learn.


What an incredibly fulfilling week in the Beartooth Mountains. Instructor Gene Ball's knowledge and love of the Yellowstone ecosystem is inspiring. His concerns and conservation message are subtle -- not browbeating -- yet effective and very compelling. The 6-mile mountain hikes were paced perfectly, not a death march at high altitude. I felt a strong feeling of accomplishment at the end of each day. The aesthetics, food and lodging at Hunter Peak Ranch were superb. In sum, a wonderful experience I will treasure.


A very comfortable out of the way, working ranch in a deep, beautiful valley is the base camp for great hikes through unspoiled beauty.


This hiking trip is classic Road Scholar--well organized, in beautiful surroundings, and wonderfully educational. If you are very familiar with the Yellowstone area (I wasn't), it might not seem all that tempting, but the level of insight and information brought to every part of the day by the guide/naturalist Jim Garry is truly exceptional and just by itself made the trip one I'll long remember. We were fortunate in having good weather, but others in the group had taken the same trip previously under more difficult conditions and came back again simply to experience other hiking trails with Jim. It was my 10th RS trip and among the best.


This program was fantastic! Outstanding, knowledgeable and helpful leaders. Great accomodations with delicious food. The hikes were absolutely breathtaking and memorable. I highly recommend this trip.
