In this special series of blog posts, we’re going to give you the opportunity meet some of our amazing Trip Leaders. If you’ve been on one of our walking trips or bike trips, then you know the important role these folks play in making your trip one to remember. They are each unique and different, but all wonderfully special and full of enthusiasm and knowledge about the destination they’ll be guiding you through.
Melissa Sher is originally from St. Louis, Mo., but has lived across the country. Before joining us as a Backroads Trip Leader, she was a raft guide on Oregon rivers. At Backroads, she leads adventure tours in Death Valley, Hawaii and Yellowstone & the Tetons.
“I love Backroads trips because, inevitably, at least one person, every day, will accomplish something that they haven’t before,” says Melissa. “If I can witness that, my day is made.”
In 2013, Melissa will help to kick off our brand-new Winter Fit trip in California. It’s designed for active individuals and gives you the opportunity to experience cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and yoga while traveling from the Sierras to wine country and San Francisco.
Have you taken a tour with Melissa? If so, give her a shout out!
