The evening Johnston canyon ice walk was amazing! The tour guide was awesome and gave us lots of interesting information about the canyons and surrounding area!

Great Night Experience

Our guide was Andrew and he was awesome! Very knowledgeable about the area, astronomy and wildlife. Made sure we experienced the beauty of being in an area where no artificial light impedes the ability to see the stars-so many could be seen it was amazing! I would highly recommend this to anyone!
