Our guides' experience, dedication, and enthusiasm make them ideal ambassadors for your destination. They chart the course, finesse the details, and speak the language (English, as well as the local language). They also possess a truly rare skill, knowing when to let serendipity and inspiration take the lead.
Clint Fries has been guiding adventurers and sharing his curiosity, love, and stewardship for the natural world for over two decades. His own sense of adventure has led him to accompany groups in locations ranging from Big Bend National Park, to Alaska, and the Arctic. In addition to guiding walking tours in Arizona and Colorado and Utah, he has been building his own home and raising a family on a windswept prairie outside Flagstaff.
Although Tim Smith’s vocation is teaching, his passion is the outdoors. Currently he divides his time between Vermont where he resides, and the Southwest where he spends his free time hiking the canyons and mesas. A self taught naturalist, Tim truly looks forward to sharing his passion for the Southwest with Country Walkers’ guests on our Colorado & Utah tour. Tim can be found hiking, canoeing, snowshoeing or skiing during his free time.
