I do some guided naturalists hikes some lasting multoiple days and some just for the day. I prefer doing them in the fall of the year when the wetaher is still warm and the bugs (mosquitos) are minimal. If the hikers do not object I will take their pictures along the way. I carry all the gear in my back pack and I stay dressed to confront clothed hikers along the route. We typically hike during the week when there aren't many hikers some of the hikes involve historic sites where I am knowledgeable and wild life where I am also knowledgeable. I carry a lunch and for the hikers. I enjoy doing this and do not charge for this. Its a chance to emet people and make friends.
