Hi Researchers, I have a couple of friends in England who want to visit the US late this year or early next. They are in their fifties and very active, having recently walked across Spain in six weeks. They are interested in visiting the Four Corners area; namely north western NM, north eastern AZ, south western CO and south eastern UT. Specific highlights would probably include: Arches, Grand Canyon, Canyonlands, Mesa Verde, Chaco Canyon nat'l parks, Durango and Silverton area, Moab, Shiprock, NM, slot canyons and rock art in south eastern UT. I have travelled extensively in that area, but always under my own steam, and they're looking for a tour guide who will allow them to customise a tour to their interests, and take care of the driving, carrying baggage etc. I'm not interested as much in suggestions of places to visit, but companies who will organise the travel for them, when they know what they want to do. They don't have flights booked yet, so could fly into any gateway city: Salt Lake City, Denver, Albuquerque, or Flagstaff (via Phoenix). They will take care of the air travel themselves, but would need transporting from one of those cities to the Four Corners area. Thanks!

Hello, I hope your friends will enjoy their visit to the southwestern US. It is a beautiful area, as you well know. The type of tour that you are looking for your friends is not that common in the United States. But, I have listed a few web pages for tour groups that go into those areas. I hope these will meet there needs.

Have your friends considered renting a comfortable recreational vehicle (RV) and using it as a comfortable "base camp" for exploring the wide-open spaces of the Four-Corners area? RV travel has some huge advantages over traditional tours and "fly-drive" vacations. Traveling in a car and staying in hotels is fine for a few days, but the packing-unpacking routine gets old very quickly. In an RV everything you need is always close at hand: a stocked refrigerator, a clean restroom and shower, a place to sit or lie down and have a rest, a warm refuge when it suddenly turns chilly, a cool place when it's hot. And the scenery is better, too. They'll spend their nights in some of the most scenic places in the world rather than in a cookie-cutter hotel room on the busiest street around. The RV is a little home on wheels, and after a few days they'll truly feel at home in it. Since they are active hikers/walkers, they would often be able to camp within steps of the trailhead, rather than needing to commute from the nearest town, which, as you know, can be miles away. If this concept sounds appealing, take a look at: www.tracks-trails.com We organize highly personalized, self-guided tours throughout the American and Canadian West. The Four Corners is a specialty (we live in Grand Junction, CO). Dan Wulfman President (800) 247-0970
