    “Thanks again for an amazing adventure! We truly had the time of our lives and Dennis and Rusty were awesome hosts. We especially enjoyed having the dogs (Skydog & Dew) with us too – it made us feel like we were really ‘trekking’ legit style. The ability to hike out in that area was particularly unique. Not another person, building, or road in site was true perfection.

    The snow made it all even better – our own Machu Picchu afternoon – lol.”
