Above and Beyond...

“I love to travel, and I've done a lot of it. This trip was a little out of the norm for me, since I chose to go with an adventure company rather than organize everything on my own. But I couldn't have been happier with the results! Active puts together a GREAT trip, and it was wonderful to just be able to get up and enjoy myself every day and not worry about any of the details. I really and truly enjoyed myself!! The hiking, the food, the people, the scenery...words (and even my pictures) can't possibly do it justice. You're just going to have to come out and experience this for yourself! Thank you, Active, for helping me check this trip off my bucket list...you can rest assured that I will be back to take another trip with you guys!”
