Originally from Lake Tahoe, CA, Colter left his career in construction supply sales to pursue his true passion: The great outdoors. Road trips across the US to places like Crater Lake, Devils Tower and even the Mississippi coast inspired him to help others enjoy their own road trip and all things he loves about this beautiful country. Sharing his passion with visitors is one of his greatest joys of founding CoveredGround Tours. During the offseason tours don’t stop for Colter as you can often find him traveling to other inspiring destinations and taking tours as a guest. Some of his recent favorite destination tours include spotting the Northern Lights in Fairbanks, AK, ATV riding in Zion National Park and an 8-day adventure in the Southwestern Mexico state of Oaxaca.
