Lisa A N, Sep 2018 Verified

The Rocky Mountains in September were sublime and the fall foliage was just kicking in when we were there backpacking. CJ was a fabulous guide! Knowledgeable, friendly and fun, together we hiked 26 miles through beautiful alpine forests and meadows. Tent camping was good fun, especially with CJ at the helm coordinating our campsite set-up, the acquistion of water and the meal preparation! Can't wait to go again next year!
