My philosophy is that every one needs to get away sometimes and hit their "reset button."Our trips let you get out of your environment and into the one you were made for as a human being. Getting out of your daily routine and environment helps you relieve stress and gain new perspectives, experiences, and appreciation of your everyday life no matter who you are. After being out in the field expanding your skills you will gain new lifelong skills, knowledge, self confidence and understanding.
Daniel Gorder has been involved in the outdoor industry for two decades and been active in the outdoors for well over thirty years.I was born into an adventurous family, some of my earliest memories are of sailing, climbing mountains, camping and exploring from the Utah back country to the Sea of Cortez, and I've never stopped.Today I spend the majority of my time in the outdoors either guiding, elk hunting or climbing peaks in the west.I've worked as a photographer for 14 years shooting music, events and winter sports for clients such as: Outside Magazine, MTV, The Independent, TEVA and CBS. I have been published worldwide as a contributor to Getty Images. My advice to anyone who enjoys the outdoors is to get out there as much as possible while you can, don't make excuses and just go."
