Hi everyone! It’s about time we jumped on #introductionfriday because things are really ramping up with our website launch (link in bio) and pre-registration drive for our 2019 youth climbing camps! We are a locally owned and operated climbing guide service and we’re proud to say we’re the Bighorn Basin’s first climbing guide service! This place is part of us as much as we are part of the place. This raw and wildly varied landscape - desert honeycombs, deep dolomite canyons, glacial bites of granite - is our soul, our business model, and our responsibility as a private company operating on public lands (shout out to all our awesome permit handlers at the BLM and USFS!). @wyoguides we place more emphasis on sustainability than anything - our whole mission is to make climbing in this part of Wyoming more sustainable. By sustainability we mean two things. For one, helping to preserve these invaluable resources by teaching beginning climbers how to have fun and be safe, better appreciate and protect our public lands. By extension this means having a good working relationship with land managers to help preserve access and hash out policy that helps wilderness stay wild, keeps public lands in public hands, and also promotes small businesses that can help bolster small town economies. Sustainability for us also means making activities like climbing more beneficial to the local community. We want to draw on more destination tourism with our custom guiding services, bringing in more money for other local businesses. We also believe a sustainable climbing guide service has to be accessible to locals. We plan to get more community members exposed to climbing through our youth camps, mentorship programs, and community climbing clinics - stay tuned, more info on these coming soon!
We’ve been making friends with the locals & I must say we have meet some amazing people here in & around Jackson Hole, Wyoming! Part of making this our new home was ensuring we’d enjoy living in the area & be able to connect with the community. We’ve always stood by treating people the way we would want to be treated. It doesn’t matter your color, age, background or status. We look for good heart n’ souls. We love finding genuine people that share the same ideology in life and passions that we do! •
Friendship equals love, support, positivity and laughter. We love to laugh, it’s the best medicine and so so good for the soul. We know the good ones are those that we’ll laugh & talk for hours...y’all know who you are! 😘 We also believe in supporting each other’s dreams, there is plenty of love and success available to share in the world. Jealously and two faced vibes we do not tolerate. Just be real. •
We have a small tribe of friends back home that we can say are true and will be friends forever. Traveling & Instagram has given us the opportunity to met some more amazing people to join our tribe. We’re thankful for these new friendships, we look forward to meeting more of you!!
Hey ewe 😜
In regards to our last post “name this Wyoming baby” the answer is Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep. This specific herd winters in the Northfork area between Cody, Wyoming and Yellowstone National Park. Fun facts: •Bighorn sheep are named after their massive, spiral horns. These horns can reach lengths up to 3ft and weigh up to 30lbs •Amazing Balance, not only standing but bouncing from ledge to ledge as narrow as 2in wide. •Head to Head combat between males, smashing into each other at speeds up to 20MPH

Fading light on the sun-kissed Teton peaks. As a photographer, it’s extremely difficult at times to decide when to continue framing your shots or just to sit back and soak in all of the beauty... However, on this aerial tour I just couldn’t help myself. I was like a little kid in a candy store. It’s pretty funny how excited I get during these times, nothing makes me happier than being in my element aka the mountains. Thanks again, @flyjacksonhole for the amazing ride! #flow#zen#deepdownintherabbithole#photographyislife#flyinghigh
Steam rises from the colorful Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park. You've probably seen aerial shots of this thermal pool, which looks like a giant eye from up high. At ground level, you can see the variety of colors in the hot spring, caused by various bacteria and minerals in the water and ground. Features like these are why Yellowstone is my favorite place on Earth. Photo taken June 22, 2011.
I’m so in love with this man, even if the live version of this photo showed him looking stoic as heck before I told him to smile and pretend he is enjoying my company. #love#bae#yellowstonenationalpark
