ABOUT TETON EXCURSIONS
Owner Aaron Bailey
I have been guiding guests through the parks and mountains of the west for the last twenty years. From rivers just outside Denali National Park to ski areas in Colorado and Wyoming, giving guests an amazing adventure in nature is what I love to do! The Rockies have many special places but Western Wyoming stands on its own. After guiding for many great companies over the years, I am now living the dream of creating my own tour business. These lands hold so many histories of people and animals; you could spend a lifetime exploring them. Let's go get it.
Owner Emily Lucas
I enjoy working behind the scenes to make a trip run without a hitch. Aaron and I met as river guides in Alaska and we have been working together ever since. We got married in there sometime too-we don't seem to be able to remember and celebrate the date. :)
I am a certified teacher, working on my Wyoming Master Naturalist certification (lifelong learning!), and love developing the educational side of the tours. We are working with the National Park Service and are proud to provide a Jr. Ranger program to every kid on our tours.
I am always around to answer questions, offer itinerary ideas, or suggest a local restaurant.
Please let me know how I can be of service.
Lead Guide Chris
Chris is a certified master naturalist from Florida. He grew up in Fort Myers, FL and learned what it is to love nature from his father. His father showed him to appreciate the depth of the living world and see it holistically.
When asked what his favorite animal is, Chris answered, "Whichever one I am looking at."
His guiding experience includes kayak guiding in the Everglades and Big Cypress Swamp as well as designing active tours for an inn on Sanibel Island.
He also served for 15 years in the US Army as a Calvary Scout and was deployed to Iraq four times.
He was drawn to the West in the military, after being stationed in Colorado Springs, CO, and spending a few years in the Rockies.
Chris is a "red meat guy"; he loves dogs and country music.
