Best Escape Memory: Finding peace in the wind with a guest who had just lost his father to suicide. He came on tour to get away and found the peace he was looking for. He said that he could feel his dad in the wind. He ended up becoming a tour guide.
Advice for Guests New to Escape: Bring a short sleeve jersey and several light, thin layers with long sleeves so that you can tie them around your waist or stuff them in your pockets because the temperatures fluctuate a lot depending on exertion and environment.
Words of Wisdom: Adventure, kindness, integrity
