Colter

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.

Allison 

A native of St. Petersburg, Florida, Allison loves living ‘out west’ and everything the mountains have to offer her. Initially coming to Wyoming to work at a dude ranch on the Northfork Shoshone River, Allison has found her calling in constantly learning more and more about this fascinating area and sharing everything she loves with her clients. Some of her favorite activities outside of work are rock hunting (petrified wood is her favorite), fishing, hiking and throwing frisbee to her beloved dog, Gin. When Allison is not guiding tours of Yellowstone in the summer she lives and works in Big Sky, MT.

Jack

A natural storyteller from Houston, TX, Jack considers history a crucial part of his tours. His innate talent for storytelling and upbeat attitude combine perfectly with Yellowstone’s rich history and natural wonders. Don’t get him talking too much though, he might never stop…As a newfound fan of the Cody Nite Rodeo Jack has been practicing lassoing with his fellow guides in his downtime.
