Always ready to help, sure not to overstep, he was wonderful. This photography tour was worth every penny (and probably should cost more!). From the moment of on-time pick up at my hotel, through stopping to see the unplanned big horn sheep, hot chili for lunch and each stop along the way it was beautiful scenery, and a true adventure. Abraham Lake was the highlight and each spot prior to that was absolutely beautiful. Mark was patient, knew the different equipment we had and was so willing to share his knowledge. I would definitely go on this tour again and hope to on other tours with this company in the future."..."
