Carolyn Beecher has guided, hiked, backpacked, and canyoneered in the Utah canyon country since the mid-1970s, appreciating the geological drama and the cultural remnants of first people’s lives. Although this part of the west lures her frequent visits, Carolyn has made her home in MT where she guides our CW Glacier tours since they were first offered in 1999. Through the winter she makes her living in the map business and caretakes a piece of land in the foothills of the Mission Mountains near Flathead Lake.
Jennifer Buls hails from Great Falls, Montana, and has worked as a rafting and hiking guide since 2002. Gifted in plant identification, Jennifer studied Forest Resource management. When not guiding, one can find her working in a local gear shop or out on the slopes snowboarding.
Prior to becoming a Glacier National Park guide in 2015, Tarek Penser worked several years for Glacier Park Boat Company while spending his spare time hiking as many of the park’s trails as he could. Tarek’s sweet demeanor and love of sharing his knowledge of the park are an asset on any trip. Living in Sweden during the off season, where he studies engineering and design, he is an avid traveler and once traveled around the world for over a year. His next goal is to ski the Vasaloppet (a 90 km Nordic ski race). In addition to skiing, he loves running, hiking, climbing, and biking.
