I was born with a passion for the map's blank spaces. Exploring them is where I feel most alive and am filled with the greatest sense of wonder and intrigue for the world around.As Nabokov once said..."nostalgia in reverse, the longing for yet another strange land, grew especially strong in spring.” Shall we go forth?
We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate.We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again—to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.
At Earthtones, we believe that tourism — when implemented thoughtfully and intentionally — can be a force for regeneration in the world: regenerative to local economic,social, and ecological systems. Partnering with individuals, guides, and communities rich in natural capital — from farmers to community land trusts and ranches — we're co-creating a network of local-powered, immersive nature experiences.
With a passion for sustainable tourism experiences, we combine the top hiking, culture and culinary experiences in Gros Morne National Park to curate avariety of tailor-made multi-day vacations and interactive day excursions.

I was raised camping and exploring the South west and US national parks. From this and spending 10 years as a cub and Boy Scout,I have developed a major appreciation for the natural world. For the past 12 years I have organized a rock climbing trip to the magical desert of Joshua Tree NP for 15-150 friends and friends of friends. From this spawned my love of guiding people through nature and up cliffs. I would love to join your team to support facilitating people connecting with nature and adventure. Thank so much! Cheers, Bryan

For 20 years I’ve made it my mission to go off the grid into the Great Southwest’s (United States, Mexico) and the Grand Canyon’s unknown lands in search of affable locals,enduring traditions, and rarely-seen earthscapes that I explored by foot, whitewater raft, rope, canoe, sea kayak, sea-going panga and, ill-advisedly, from the back of a ornery mule. I wanted to disappear into the landscape to photograph my journeys with the colors of the earth, note my perceptions, and compose evocative essays that have appeared in distinguished photography books. Oftentimes, those explorations necessitate
