A travel and adventure enthusiast from an early age, Joyce (Joy) Binnie was brought up on the U.S. National Parks and continues to seek out nature at every opportunity. Splitting her time between northern Arizona (near Grand Canyon National Park) and West Yellowstone, Montana, she enjoys hiking, baking, stimulating conversation and all forms of travel, having visited countries on five continents! As a self-described “Yellowstone Geek”, Joy is often found poking around the bookstores of Yellowstone looking for her next read or attending classes to further her knowledge of her favorite place on earth. Joy’s favorite thing about guiding is sharing a “bucket-list” experience with guests and seeing their faces as they experience this wonderland!
Doug Cousineau studied biology and petroleum science in Oregon and Alaska with other more interesting semesters spent building log cabins and wooden boats before working in aviation with an Alaskan bush flight company as well as United Airlines. He also operated an antebellum B&B located along the Mississippi River and has traveled, lived, and guided around the world while racing competitively and coaching various sports, including road and mountain biking, skiing, running, and adventure racing. Doug “loves the edges of a day outside” (ie, the sunrises and sunsets!) and would prefer to be on a trail to just about anything else so he can enjoy the spectacular flora and fauna that surrounds him.
