Michael Lett
Michael LettSenior Tour Guide
Michael was conceived deep in the heart of Texas in early spring and entered this world under a fiery Sagittarian sky- born a nomad. Summertime family vacations varied from the traditional Florida family fiasco, to wilderness camping. After graduating from Texas Tech University he traveled throughout Western Europe, then Asia for a year, then Australia, South and Central Americas and India.  However, his heart belongs to the open roads of North America and the National Parks of the United States. Michael embarked on his tour guiding career 13 years ago in Los Angeles, California. He operated coast to coast camping and lodging tours in the United States and the Canadian Rockies. He now migrates between Alaska and the great North American deserts. Michael believes Grand Canyon, Bryce, Zion, Death Valley, and all the lovely arches, salt flats, and ghost towns in between are some of the most special places on Earth. “How lucky am I to earn a living showing visitors spectacular National Parks of the American Southwest. (I also have collected so many stamps in my National Park Passport Stamp book that I had to buy a second book! Unfortunately my close friend and fellow guide, Tim Wilcox, still has only one (1) stamp book.)”

Hailing from the Northeast (Massachusetts to be exact), Jennie grew up playing in the woods and camping in the backyard, developing a love for the outdoors. Having exchange students from around the world live with her growing up, she was always been fascinated with travelling and seeing the world.  Jennie started her travel career as a travel agent and travelling the world when she could.  Becoming a tour leader 8 years ago allowed her to explore her own country in more depth, as well as travel internationally. She first started leading tours throughout the USA, Canada and Mexico.  She then decided that she wanted to explore and work in other parts of the world and has since worked as an overland tour driver and leader in Eastern and Southern Africa, India, Nepal and Central America.  Having worked and travelled in 49 different countries, she has now realized home is where the heart is- The Southwest USA! Always up for an adventure, in her spare time you may find her whitewater rafting the Grand Canyon, hopping on a sailboat across the Indian Ocean or hitchhiking through Morocco
Mike Brown
Mike BrownSenior Tour Guide
Mike is originally from Baltimore Maryland, but he is no “city-slicker”! At the age of 15 he first experienced the American Southwest at Philmont Scout Ranch in Raton, New Mexico. He fell in love with the beauty and grandeur of the region and vowed to come back one day.

Mike has excelled in many professions including fashion design, DJ’ing, and massage therapy. In early 2009 he left the world of 9-5 jobs behind to “find himself” and became a global nomad, living, working, and visiting over 50 countries since. His first guiding experience was at one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Petra, Jordan, where he volunteered with local Bedouins. From there he went on to guide and escort tours in places like Spain, Norway, the Canary Islands and Caribbean.

Mike is convinced that traveling can bring about positive life changing experiences in everyone, just ask about his!! This is why he is guiding tours today.

When not guiding, he is chasing the summer weather around the globe in search his next great adventure.

Joel Clark
Joel ClarkTour Guide
“There’s an old saying here in the desert,” I once heard Joel say. “What you see in the desert is a reflection of your own soul.” Never without his old battered hat, given to him by his grandfather, Joel Clark has an addiction to the wide open spaces of the West.
He has hiked the Pacific Crest Trail, the Continental Divide Trail, the Appalachian Trail, and charted his own cross-country trek across the Mojave Desert totaling some 8,000 miles. Joel is an experienced guide, leading adventure tours and horse riding expeditions through the canyon lands of Southern Utah for over 6 years. When he gets out his guitar around the campfire, bring a handkerchief because you’re going to hear some soulful old cowboy songs.
