“Thank you so much for giving my grandchild and I an extraordinary memory. Very special.” – Liz, New York

“Thank you for a great Road Scholar trip. We really enjoyed it!” – G, C, and A, Florida

The Crater Lake and Bend Outdoor Adventure was beyond terrific. Mark led the group in activities that included exploring a lava tube cave, rafting some class 3 rapids, hiking up to 5 and 6 miles a day in some beautiful terrain, enjoying Crater Lake in a guided boat…He created an atmosphere that rates 5 stars!!Ruth, North Carolina

“His organizational skills are very impressive; we packed a huge amount of learning and fun into one week. He even snuck in a nighttime walk near Crater Lake to a spring coming out of the mountain with a flock of little bats skimming around the pool inches from us. Loved it!”

“Mark led this group in an easy-going and positive manner. The program was fun and the educational benefits were high. The activities fostered a bonding between grandchild and grandparent as well as with the group as a whole. He had excellent suggestions for free-time activities and restaurants on our own. He prepared us well for what we were going to see and do.”

“Thank you for all your help, kindness and consideration you gave to us on this trip. Truly enjoyed our adventure and the many wonderful places we visited – your stories and extra information has made Oregon extra memorable. All Best Wishes.” Connie, Minnesota.
