We enjoyed a SUPER fun jeep ride through the La Plata canyon and mountains. Our guide, Doug, was very informative and funny, with a vast knowledge of the area which he shared along the way. I would highly recommend this tour!

Our family of four recently visted Durango for the first time this past weekend. We rafted with Matt who not only taught us how to paddle, but gave us a lot of interesting facts about the area. It was a really fun time!
