She brings you first hand knowledge of what you should expect and look for in a good outfitter. Along with her articles detailing her experiences you can click on Featured Outfitter for a profile of a selected company.If you are an armchair traveler, you can enjoy the sensual experience of being in our last remaining wilderness areas without straining a muscle, getting altitude sickness or tipping your canoe.Most of the trips she takes are with the benefit of a guide, but often she explores alone seeking the sustenance from nature that can only be found in solitude.
