Meet Your Expert Tour Guides

Owner, Guide, Master Naturalist, and so forth.

Aaron Bailey

I have been guiding guests through the parks and mountains of the west for the last twenty years. From rivers just outside Denali National Park to ski areas in Colorado and Wyoming, giving guests an amazing adventure in nature is what I love to do! The Rockies have many special places but Western Wyoming stands on its own.

After guiding for many great companies over the years, I am now living the dream of creating my own tour business. These lands hold so many histories of people and animals; you could spend a lifetime exploring them. Let’s go get it.

Owner, Guide, WY Master Naturalist, Administrator and such.

Emily Lucas

You will most often find me working behind the scenes to make every trip run without a hitch.  

I started guiding on rivers in Montana and Idaho almost 20 years ago.  Aaron and I met as river guides in Denali National Park, Alaska, and we have been working together ever since. 

I am a certified English teacher and taught middle school in Wyoming and Alaska. 

In 2023, I completed my Wyoming Master Naturalist certification through the University of Wyoming, and love developing the educational side of the tours.

Iip with the National Park Service, we will continue to provide a Jr. Ranger program to every kid (and young-at-hearts) on our tours. 

I am always around to answer questions, offer itinerary ideas, or suggest some good food.  

Lead Naturalist Guide

Chris Thorn

Returning for year three, Chris holds Master Naturalist certifications in both Wyoming and Florida.   He grew up in Fort Myers, FL, and learned what it is to love nature from his father. His father showed him to appreciate the depth of the living world and see it holistically.

When asked what his favorite animal is, Chris answered, “Whichever one I am looking at.”

His guiding experience includes kayak guiding in the Everglades and Big Cypress Swamp as well as designing active tours for an inn on Sanibel Island in South Florida.  

He also served for 15 years in the US Army as a Calvary Scout and was deployed to Iraq four times.

He was drawn to the West in the military, after being stationed in Colorado Springs, CO, and spending a few years in the Rockies.

Chris is a “red meat guy”; he loves dogs and country music.
