Visit Vicariously: Trip Reports

There is no better way to experience a Backcountry Journeys trip than to go on one. Anything short of booking and traveling with us just cannot equal the experiences, sights, friends made, or the images that you’ll produce while on one of our world-class trips. So, where do you want to go next?



Whether you have traveled with us in the past, or are considering a trip, Backcountry Journeys would like to bring you with us, in a way, with our Trip Reports.

At the conclusion of each Backcountry Journeys trip, we’ll post a report on our Trip Reports Page. It will be written by the guide and will discuss the trip and all of its notable happenings.

Kenton Krueger grew up and spent the first 33 years of his life in the corn country of Omaha, Nebraska. After studying aviation at the University of Nebraska Omaha’s Aviation Institute, he “conned” his way into the newsroom at the award-winning Omaha World-Herald where for 3+ years he wrote and photographed news articles on a variety of topics such as community events, travel and even mixed martial arts for the sports department. Yet something was missing. While on backpacking trips to Grand Teton and Grand Canyon National Parks in the mid-2000’s he was quick to realize that the wild lands of the western United States stoked a fire in his heart as nothing else could. This realization led to a relocation to Flagstaff, Arizona, and he hasn’t looked back. He has spent the past several years guiding backpackers, hikers and photographers into the wild places of the American West such as Havasu Falls, Grand Canyon, and Yellowstone National Parks as well as in the Grand Staircase Escalante in southern Utah. In addition to backpacking and camping, his adventures include rock climbing, exploring the slot canyons of southern Utah, mountain biking, and bagging 14ers in Colorado’s San Juan Mountain Mountain Range. Kenton is a trail runner, a former pilot, newspaper photographer, and writer. Kenton looks forward to utilizing his years of guiding experience, combined with his passion and experience behind the lens to provide memorable and unforgettable experiences at the wild places we will visit together.
