Timberline Adventures


Not ones to rest on their laurels, company owners Carol and Dick Gottesegen are launching a dozen new trips in 2009. They've spent the past 27 years guiding hiking and cycling adventures predominantly in North America: cycling through New Mexico's Sangre de Christo Mountains, hiking into Kauai's 3,600-foot Waimea Canyon, pedaling through Kentucky's rolling horse country. The Gottesegens book nights in historic inns and as many of the classic national park system lodges as possible—Yellowstone's Jackson Lake Lodge and Old Faithful Inn among them.
