It is said that your career path is never straight, but rather a zigzag. With a Bachelors in Liberal Studies from Chapman University in California, Carter Atkinson positioned himself to become a teacher. That path eventually intersected with his appetite for the outdoors and the next logical step for him was combining the two.
Based out of Bozeman, Montana Carter has about a decade of experience leading groups on technical rock climbs, kayaking the Mangrove tunnels of the Everglades, hiking in Yellowstone, and 8th graders on American Heritage tours in Washington D.C. He counts his passions as being a great dad and husband, mountain biking, surfing—and sharing the fantastic outdoors with his family, friends, and tour groups.
