Wendy Perrin | 2017 ‘WOW List’

“Lifelong believers in the transformative power of nature, Marty and Mark are on a mission to reacquaint the public with America’s national parks. Focusing on parks west of the Mississippi and in Alaska and southern Florida, they have spent years exploring these wilderness areas, identifying the most experienced guides (some PhDs, others former park rangers), testing lodging options all the way from cushy hotels to backcountry base camps, and meeting the local characters that bring life to each park—and, now, each trip. They also specialize in outdoor-focused trips in California, from redwoods to beach to Sierras. Most of their travelers choose to drive themselves around, detailed itinerary in hand and guides accompanying them when helpful, but for those with far more money than time, Marty and Mark can book chartered planes to whisk groups from park to park. They can even make Yosemite, Yellowstone, and the Grand Canyon doable in a single trip.”

Alternatively, stay out late as crowds dissipate around 7 p.m., says Marty Behr, the founder and chief development officer of National Parks Revealed. Sunset is just as dramatic.”
