Meet Your Guides
Rare Earth Adventures was formed in June 2006, and is owned and operated by three former USAF Survival-Evasion-Resistance-Escape (SERE) Specialists. They started REA to provide the best guide service in the Pacific Northwest, bringing the locals to the backcountry and removing the stigma that the backcountry is scary and difficult. Their experience as prior instructors in the United States Air Force and as Outdoor Leaders certified by the Wilderness Education Association assures their ability to provide the highest quality instruction using best practices of the outdoors and adult learning methodologies. The owners are determined to be successful in this industry, but more importantly, they are constantly in a state of improvement, looking for the next great adventure. Whether that is caving through the volcano tubes at the base of Mount Adams, guiding a charity up the third largest mountain in North America, looking for a local brewery tour/tasting to incorporate into their snowshoe schedule, or just going out to the woods to hang out with friends and family, they are seriously passionate about outdoor education and experiences.
