"Hi Crede,
Just a note of thanks for giving your time yesterday afternoon. We enjoyed the skiing, your teaching and humor, and the beautiful snowy fields. We hope to return before winter ends, bringing some more friends to share a new adventure and a chance to explore the trails. It was nice to meet all of you, of course even Lucky - please give him a 'pat' on the head." Jeff

Crede: Thanks for the great cross country skiing lesson on Sunday (16 Jan, 2011). It was a great introduction to my new favorite sport. Now I can visit the trails I hike in the summer in the winter as well. I will recommend All Earth Eco Tours to my friends. Keep up the great work!
