As I fall back in my day-to-day, it will give me satisfaction just knowing that somewhere on this spinning planet there is a marvelous guide leading a group of women to a beautiful place – and it will make their hearts soar! The sights that I have seen on these trips are surpassed only by the wonderful spirits surrounding them.
–Mary B, NY. (Hawaiian Islands, Arizona Spectacular, Fiji – New Zealand)
I’m thankful that your spirit has created and provided such a wonderful safe environment to celebrate the joy of adventure. New Zealand turned out to be a trip beyond anything I’d imagined. It was a celebration of the wonderful spirit of women – compassion, empathy, tolerance and inclusivity.
–Linda N, Edmonton (Magic Morocco, Arizona Spectacular, Hawaiian Islands, New Zealand
I went on this journey to discover the beauty of the Rockies, only to discover something greater … the beauty, strength and courage of women supporting women! What a great service we do for ourselves when we shed our armor of everyday life to pursue adventure and self-growth. It was a thrill to be reminded here in the Rockies, that confidence plus goofy fun is the BEST medicine in life.
–Irene N, HI (Canadian Rockies)
Your trips give me the opportunity to laugh like a little girl! Swimming in Emerald Lake, lying on a glacier, laughing till my sides hurt – these are the things I will remember always.
–Sherryann P, PA – (Sedona, Tetons- – Yellowstone, Canadian Rockies)
My word for this trip was trust. We trusted one another with our challenges and our hearts. From the full moon in Canyon de Chelly to sloshing up the Narrows – I feel so lucky to be part of this great cosmic experience!
–Marybeth S, KS (Best of the West)
I am certain that many of the images and deeply emotional experiences I have had on this trip will remain clear in my memories. I am grateful for your leading me into challenging adventures that have given me more self-confidence. Your trips get me in touch with my heart and soul – its good medicine.
–Leslie V, CA (Canadian Rockies, Best of the West, Tetons – Yellowstone)
Canyon Calling trips rank extremely high among my worldwide travels. New Zealand is a “must see” for every traveler who journeys through our glorious planet. Your kindness, sincere efforts and well-selected destinations make these trips quite magical.
–Devra H, PA (Canadian Rockies, New Zealand, Peruvian Andes)
Your trips are top notch adventures that are all about getting in touch with the many facets of Nature’s splendor while doing something special for one’s self. We’ve camped really comfortably in Southwest canyons and hiked, biked and ridden horses and jeeps. Every day is a new activity which makes for a great vacation.
–Nancy B, VA. (Arizona Spectacular, Desert-Mountain Escape, Grand Canyon Rafting, Canadian Rockies, Fire & Iceland, New Zealand, Balloons over New Mexico)
Thanks for the encouragement and confidence. This was the best vacation I ever had! Your sunny disposition and positive outlook made this week another smashing success! I have so much to bring back to Brooklyn – good air, silence and precious memories.
–Fay S, NY (Utah/Canyonlands, Sedona, Canadian Rockies)
Thank you for helping me regain the spirit of adventure with activities that I once loved but let go of over the years. Your careful planning helped me enjoy “being in the moment” and that calm will stay in my memory when life re-enters a hectic pace. I got to be a kid again with no worries and am filled with a sense of wonder at our beautiful earth.
–Maria O, CT (Tetons/Yellowstone)
Words cannot begin to describe what the last ten days have been for me. The energy and expertise you put into every aspect of the trip allowed me to let go and just be. The camaraderie of the women, the chance NOT to be in charge while at the same time completely trusting the hands of whom I write, all while laughing till my sides burst – well my soul is FULL!
–Sarah M, FL (Best of the West)
You did it again … not just an adventure but a wonderful, unforgettable life experience was my gift from your care and planning. Once again this trip proved how courageous and loving are women all over the world. Our travel team was great.
–Becky B, New Brunswick (Morocco, New Zealand, Peruvian Andes)
I treasure my Canyon Calling experiences. You have taken me awesome places. Your endless efforts to put together fun activities that teach me something about myself while I enjoy the challenge of the moment, make you special and your trips a joy.
–Margie S, CA (Canadian Rockies, Best of the West, Tetons – Yellowstone)
My spirit expands every year that I travel with you. You work tremendously hard to make these trips possible. Not many people can say they have found, and are good at, their life’s calling.
–Joy O, MN (Canadian Rockies, Best of the West, Tetons – Yellowstone)
This was one of the most exciting trips I’ve ever done. I am going home renewed. Thanks for the memories.
–Lee R, IL (Arizona Spectacular, Canadian Rockies, Desert Mountain Escape)
This trip was a rich tapestry of treasure that unfolded hourly where we multi-faceted characters began to share and revel in our fortunate gathering amid spectacular scenery. All senses were refreshed and renewed from combinations of physical challenges, delicious foods, and body pampering. Deep conversations laced with humor, the complete awe of an unlit sky where the Milky Way sparkled us into silence while shooting stars reminded us of our dreams and held us. Janet led us through an adventure that filled our souls and brought Mother Nature into full view. Canyons truly do call us. — Betty H, WA (Desert Mountain Escape)
